Old-Time Coordinator Joe Newberry has gathered outstanding performers and teachers from the Southern Appalachians, the Ozarks and beyond.
Students take morning classes with their primary instructor, and then choose from an array of elective workshops and demonstrations. Evenings are filled with lively jams, slow jams, song swaps, dances and concerts. Friday features a student showcase and an old-time porch party. Old-Time Week extends through the Augusta Festival, August 10-12.
All full-time old-time music classes are intended for those who can already play their instrument to some extent and are ready to start learning old-time style, technique and repertoire.
To register, specify “Old-Time Week” and your instrument and instructor.
