There’s only one Tom Waits, the mythical man with the otherworldly voice and transcendent songs! He can take you to church, down to the underbelly of the world, up to the mountain, place you in a smoky bar room, or hit your heartstrings with a beautiful ballad. Join this ensemble class and together we’ll learn the iconic songs by this American legend.  

This ensemble welcomes all instruments and vocalists. 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. 

“Come on up to the house!”
