Venezuelan Strings Workshop by Larry and Joe
February 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$20.00
In this workshop for string players, visiting folk fusion artists Larry and Joe will teach students “El Gavilán Tocuyano de Pablo Canela,” something like the “Orange Blossom Special” of the Venezuelan fiddle tradition, just before their concert. As Joe says, the Venezuelan fiddle tradition has “the perfect intersection of bluegrass and swing styles, and a uniquely Afro-Caribbean approach to phrasing.”
This class is oriented towards intermediate/advanced fiddlers and cellists, but anyone that plays a melodic instrument can participate by learning the melody. Larry will also teach the chords to students wishing just to strum along. Joe will interpret.
