Saturday Workshops


1:00 Song Writing for Fun – Maybe we all can’t be Willie Nelson or Carol King, but we can all write songs for fun; even if it’s just to sing in the shower. Join Gwen and Steve from the Tussey Mountain Moonshiners to talk about songwriting. (maybe bring a song or two of your own to share)

2:00 Bass - Come and talk all things bass with Lumber City Slim of the Tussey Mt. Moonshiners (techniques, tips and maybe even a little musical philosophy)

3:00 Fiddle – Fiddle Luthier Joe Fili will conduct a workshop on fiddle care, maintenance and quality. Learn when your fiddle is in need of help, how and
what to do, and what measurements and settings are best for your fiddle.

4:00 Banjo - Mark Doncheski – Playing in other keys without a capo… I’m also open to other topics by those attending the workshop.

5:00 Guitar
