- Old Time
- School of Music workshop
Lift your voice and learn to sing old-time songs from the mountains, including ballads, hymns and light-hearted songs. Experience a variety of traditional Appalachian singing styles, practice singing without accompaniment, and learn how accompaniment shapes a song. Singing will be taught “by ear” in a method suitable for beginners and experienced singers. By singing and learning the stories behind the sources of the songs, students will be exposed to the diverse cultures of Appalachia. Songs covered will come from the repertoires of the Carter Family, Jean Ritchie, Horton Barker, the McLain Family, Sheila Kay Adams and other singers from the community of Madison County, North Carolina.
This workshop will be held from 1:00-3:00pm on Sunday, March 18, 2018.
