Let’s Sing and Play Songs from the Folk Boom Era
Instructor: Terry Hoffman
Date: Fridays, February 2nd - March 16th (no class Mar.2)
Time: 7:30 pm
Price: $125, early bird discount is available*
This class is a huge treat! Your Friday nights will become a lovely evening of remembrances, song-updating and great harmonies. We established a book of 40+ tunes that included great favourites like Turn Turn Turn, Can’t Help But Wonder Where I’m Bound, Big Yellow Taxi, and re-discovered other classics like Everybody’s Talkin’, Try To Remember, The Dolphins, and Ramblin’ Boy. Songwriters we re-visit: Richard Farina, Patrick Sky, Fred Neil, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and many others.
We’ll play great tunes, and work on accompaniment skills, fingerpicking, bass runs, grace notes, walkups and walkdowns, solos and harmony and acappella singing. Lots of harmony! This will be more than an exercise in nostalgia. We won’t cover these tunes… we’ll uncover them one more time.
This class is open to all instruments, especially voice!
