Bluegrass & Beyond Slow Jam
Open to anyone that wants experience playing and singing classic and contemporary songs from American folk, country, rock, and bluegrass traditions at moderate tempos in a supportive, educational, fun jam setting.
Typical songs are from Hank Williams, the Carter Family, Old Crow Medicine Show, the Louvin Brothers, Gram Parsons, Allison Krauss, and many others. The instructor, Ran Bush, will help to avoid "jam buster" songs and act as the Jam Lifeguard; for example, the Grateful Dead's "Friend of the Devil" would fit well with this format, but probably not "Uncle John's Band". Many Emmylou Harris songs would work, but Joni Mitchell or Tori Amos songs, probably not.
