Old Time and Traditional Week – June 11- 17, 2017
Old Time Singing and Harmony with Cary Fridley
Using Carter Family-style harmonies as a jumping off place, we will work with three part (and more!) singing in this beautiful style. Finding harmony lines that sometimes weave around the melody, sometimes cross or create unisons, students will develop a better ability to hear and find parts, as well as learn what gives these harmonies their particular old-time country sound, and power. We will introduce some basic music theory, but all songs are taught by ear, and lyrics are provided. No singing experience necessary, just the desire to sing!
Class size limited to 15 students
