A day of workshops with Li'l Rev!

  • Mar 1, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • Pam and Bob's house

The Folk Project Special Concerts presents: Ukulele Workshops with Li’l Rev! Saturday March 1, 2014 $25 per workshop or attend both for $40 (you save $10!)

Ukulele great Li’l Rev will be performing at The Minstrel on Friday February 28th! So… the following day, we will be offering two 90 minute workshops (one morning session and one in the afternoon).

10:30am until 12:00pm Intros, Endings & Turnarounds: This unique 90 minute workshop focusing on teaching the student how to take catchy little intros and endings and add them onto songs currently in their repertoires. Most are just 4-5 chords in first and second position. These little gems have been passed onto musicians for generations, from the great songwriters of the Broadway Era to the Boogie, Blues and Country motifs that every ukulele ought to know. This class is open to all levels and everyone will leave with dozens of ideas on how to spruce up a song with a tasty intro or ending.


The afternoon session will run from 1:30pm until 3:00

Super Cool Right Hand Techniques: This 90 minute workshop represents over 20 years of studying, collecting and preserving right hand techniques as passed on by some of the most seminal players in the U.S. The student will learn 4 different roll strokes, a number of different triplet patterns, the fan stroke, tremolo techniques, vaudeville flips and tricks, as we as a couple of very cool old blues and novelty numbers with which to practice these numbers. This class is open to all levels. So if you are looking to improve your strumming technique, this class is a must take for every ukulele player.
