American Roots Guitar Presentation and Workshop with Luke Cerny

Join local guitarist Luke Cerny for an interactive demonstration and practical workshop focused on demonstrating and teaching many of the approaches, techniques, and tools present in early American acoustic guitar styles as well as the artists who championed them – from bottleneck blues and ragtime fingerpicking to folk strumming and bluegrass flatpicking, you will get up close and personal demonstrations to help widen and deepen the palette of Americana flavors in your playing and songwriting.

If you play guitar (or are thinking about learning), please feel free to bring an acoustic guitar and capo. Make sure it’s tuned beforehand. Additional accessories to consider bringing are: plectrum (flatpick), thumbpick, finger picks, slide, and electronic tuner, but are not totally necessary if you don’t normally use them. You may want to bring a notebook and pen. If you don’t play guitar but are just a fan of old time music, country blues, ragtime, folk, bluegrass, or just the sound of strings in general, feel free to join us in actively appreciating guitar styles of the early 20th century.

Who is this program for? Beginner to advanced guitar players and non-players curious about music history. Ages 14+ (teens under 18 must be accompanied by an adult)

Members: $20 | Non-members: $25
