Time: 15:00 - 17:30

Major Events | Online Events | Workshops

Jessica Comeau

A UK/Europe-facing online workshop with Jessica Comeau on Zoom for Advanced Beginner and above.
Join us online to explore a variety of musical traditions, while learning and practicing techniques for producing smoother, more expressive sounds on the mountain dulcimer. These techniques will include clean fretting, clean fingering, sustain, and smooth note and chord transitions. We will address techniques such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides as we encounter them in the music. For some songs, we will use D-A-D’s sister tuning C-G-C, which is also compatible with D-A-D tablature.
Cost: £20.

At the end of the workshop you will be able to sit back and enjoy a fabulous 30-minute concert from Patti and her group Looney’s Fortune. A fun time – not to be missed!
