Concerts & Workshops


Everybody gets the blues sometimes (to quote Merle Haggard) and the best way to lose the blues is to play the blues. Besides teaching you some classic blues tunes, Fred will show you how to strum moveable chords to a 12-bar blues in any key, and give you some classic licks and scales for jamming with other people. Bring a slide or bottleneck, because you'll also learn a slide blues tune. Tab will be handed out so you can practice in the days and weeks to come after the session, and Fred encourages you to use your iphone to record a video of some of the songs and lick's he'll present.

Cost: $ 20.00

Dan Levenson Concert
- Jun 10, 2017

Dan Levenson has been a musician most all of his life so far. He was born to and raised in a musical family where his father called square dances and his mother sang and played piano and guitar. Dan's parents even met at a square dance themselves. This evening you hear his story told of and through music. More than one story actually, and about more than one person. It is the stories of folk music, of growing up, of travel and life on the road. It is Dan's story but is also at once your story. It is history and entertainment; education and art; friends and family; school, work, life and play.

Cost: $ 15.00
