The Social

Welcome to The Social! On select Fridays throughout the year, Old Town School hosts workshop-style social events – lectures, listening talks, dances, singalongs, and play-alongs – with faculty and visiting artists.

Fri. December 14, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM · 4545 N Lincoln Ave

THE SOCIAL - Honky Tonk Angels

This ain’t no boys’ club. From the beginning, women in country music have made feisty, flashy, fierce and fun music. From Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn to Kacey Musgraves and the Dixie Chicks, we’ll dig into the deep well of songs by the trailblazers, hellraisers, whiskey slingers and sweet singing female-identified artists of country music. This social is an 90 minute preview of an 8 week ensemble class led by teaching artist Shelley Miller that will run Saturdays 2:30-3:50 pm starting January 12. Learn the songs, the riffs, the harmonies, and join the band! Both the social and the class are open to all acoustic (and electric) instruments and vocalists. [more info]
