Kyle Tuttle Banjo Workshop
Join Kyle Tuttle for a Q & A about all things banjo. Open to banjoist's and non-players alike! Ask him anything about practice techniques, tips for the studio, or live sound gear. And if the audience runs out of questions then you can just listen to the International Banjo Champion pick his banjo!
Jeremy Blaes Bones Workshop
The "walking metronome" Jeremy Blaes will be putting on a bones workshop during Lovegrass Music Festival. Jeremy made his first appearance at Lovegrass 2019 with an interactive flatfoot dancing lesson! This year he will be teaching us to play the bones! This workshop will include working on technique, etiquette and how to incorporate the bones into different styles of traditional folk music. It will also include the ancient history tied to the bones instrument. Materials will be provided!
JAmming 101 Workshop
For the complete beginner to experienced Grove jammers, this workshop will help you be more aware of jam etiquette and how to make your jam sessions more musical and inclusive. From tips on how to back up a vocalist during verses to guidelines on when it's okay to call out one of those 'jam busters', we'll try to cover it all! Bring your instruments and a picking chair to join in on the fun.
