Musicians and music lovers, come join the Folk Yeah! Ensemble. Each week we’ll learn timeless songs from the wide net of American “folk” music. From Mississippi John Hurt to Bob Dylan, Gillian Welch to Taj Mahal, Wilco, Nina Simone and beyond. Country-blues, old-time, cajun, bluegrass, country, rock & roll, gospel, alt-folk are all fair game. As a group we’ll create arrangements, pass around verses, adding harmony and improvisation. We’ll share stories about the songs, enjoy good company, and shake the blues of the world. All instruments and vocalists welcome. Join this ensemble class led by Avi Salloway of Billy Wylder and dive into the magical and evolving world of “folk” music.
