Workshops? We got ‘em. All the time, with some of the best instructors in the world. Literally. We are a unique program in that it’s not all about concerts. It’s all about music and the community of creativity. And to do that, you need to keep going all year, which is why we also have the Skunk Misery Ramblers fiddle club. Oh, yeah, and the pretentiously-named (informally, that is) World Young Player’s Mandolin Orchestra, designed to introduce young kids into the world of stringed instruments (they’re tuned like a violin) in a laid-back way.
We’re hard at work scheduling our next workshop, so stay tuned!
What’s a Sunk Misery Rambler? Our own fiddle club, made up of students and adults of various abilities, from beginners to really good pros. We play violins, mandolins, guitars, banjos, whatever. We’re not just old-time, but also Western Swing, Bluegrass, and yeah, we throw in a little classical here and there.
And, there’s a new time and format for the Skunks!
That’s right! Every other Sunday evening at 4:00 PM, plenty of time to get home for dinner and relax before Monday. Plus, we’ll now be lead by Corinna Smith, formerly of Fiddlers ReStrung, who will bring a whole new level of, well, organization (we were perhaps a little too loose in the past) and fun to the program. Jump on in, we’re having a great time in a no-pressure, learning-based picking session!
PLUS: All our workshops!! Keep reading…
A big old thanks to the leaders of our latest workshops, folks like Brittany Haas and Lauren Rioux, Vishten, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, April Verch, Bearfoot, Claire Lynch, Hanneke Cassel, and on down the line!!
