Registration Now Open For Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival

Sunpie Barnes Let the Blues begin!

Artistic Director Corey Harris has expanded the Acoustic Blues workshop for 2010, offering two sessions each morning and one in the afternoon. Classes are offered in blues guitar, slide guitar, Piedmont-style fingerpicking, harmonica, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, blues piano, bass, washboard, and blues singing–all taught by the masters of the country blues tradition who come to Port Townsend from all over North America.

In addition to these offerings, there will be expanded opportunities for playing, including nighttime jams with the faculty, an assortment of band labs, and chances for solo performances for both friends and mentors. The Acoustic Blues workshop is open to and appropriate for all skill levels. If you don't play an instrument, hop on vocal track, including two blues-singing workshops and the Gospel choir.
