Vintage Country Ensemble

$206 ($196 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Immerse yourself in the high lonesome sound, the honky-tonk heartache, and a smattering of Sunday sanctification. We’ll teach you how to find those plaintive harmonies and create a soulful backup in the music of bands like the Carter Family, the Louvin Brothers, and Girls of the Golden West. Join with other pickers and singers to make a band . This is an ensemble class. Some students will work on lead, harmony and backup vocals, while others focus on lead and backup fiddle, mandolin or guitar lines. Rhythm guitar and bass provide the foundation. Paul Tyler and Gail Tyler will teach all the parts and coach you in performance.

Instruments: Bass, Banjo, Bass-Upright, Fiddle, Guitar, Harmonica, Mandolin, Banjo - Tenor, Banjo - 5 String
