SLIDE GUITAR WORKSHOP RORY BLOCK

SATURDAY 2:00PM – 3:00PM

In Rory’s slide workshop we will analyze and implement techniques needed to get the cleanest sound, the best vibrato, individual notes, dampening and shimmer, how to navigate the neck both up and down, plus numerous options and ideas for creating solos and backup riffs. We will discuss choice of slide styles- metal, glass, ceramic, and which finger to use- pinky thru first, full finger or short slide. All levels are welcomed, as we cover the territory from A to Z. The goal is to offer something useful for everyone.

African Drum Workshop
SUNDAY 2:30PM – 3:30PM

Traditional West African Drumming

Kulu Mele music director John Wilkie and drummer Ira Bond are both highly accomplished professional percussionists and drum instructors. “Wilk” and Ira will teach djembe and doundoun technique, rhythms and language. Participants will learn basic call and response patterns on the drum and how the music communicates to the other musicians, the dancers and the audience. Students will also learn about the historical context of the rhythms and their sacred and ritual practice. This workshop is open to drummers ages 10 & up at all skill levels.. Students will bring their own drums (either a djembe or any in the doundoun family). Djembes are hand drums. Doundouns require drum sticks. (A limited number of loaner drums will be available)
