Dan Levenson - Jam Workshop
Jam Workshop - Play Nice with Others.
Old Time Fiddle and Banjo together! In the traditional old-time world, a jam or session is where musicians get together to play music. Whether it’s just a fiddle and a banjo or includes other instruments, the desired sound is as an ensemble – without “breaks” or “solos”, microphones, sound systems, or performance tricks. The goal is to play together and produce a unified sound, no matter what instrument you play. We’ll work on techniques as well as tunes as we learn to Play Nice together.
Dan is an experienced teacher of the Appalachian old-time music style. His influential collections “Old-Time Festival Tunes for Clawhammer Banjo” and “Old-Time Festival Tunes for Fiddle and Mandolin” (Mel Bay publications) have defined much of the jam repertoire over the last 20 years. http://www.clawdan.com/
