Diving into the Blues: Local Music History and the Delta Blues Workshop & Presentation

July 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Diving into the Blues: Local Music History and the Delta Blues Workshop & Presentation

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 – with a special focus on local music history and the Delta Blues, digging into the catalogues of artists such as Charley Patton, Skip James, Son House, and more.

If you play guitar (or are thinking about learning), please feel free to bring an acoustic guitar, capo, and tuner. Bring a slide as well, if you have one. If not, a selection of different sizes, shapes, and materials will be available to try out. Additional accessories to consider bringing are: plectrum (flatpick), thumbpick, and finger picks, 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 the Blues, feel free to join us in actively appreciating some of the guitar styles and approaches that came out of the Mississippi Delta and surrounding regions in 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)
