Thread Name: Festival Question/Workshops
Subject: RE: BS: Festival Question
The group I play with, "The Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation" (acousticblues.com) does workshops at festivals on blues music. IT is more od a jam session where folks are not only permitted but encouraged to join in... It really doesn't matter too much what their skill levels are since there are enough of us to carry the song... And sometimes we take someone aside for a little one-on-one tutoring. BTW, we also do this every Saturday afternoon at Archie Edwards Barber Shop at 20th and Bunker Hill in N.E. Washington, D.C.
