By popular demand, Centrum is pleased to announce a new music workshop taking place May 19-22, 2016!
Centrum’s Vintage Jazz “Hot Strings” workshop celebrates the contributions of pioneering string players to the burgeoning hot jazz of the 1920’s and ’30’s: Folks like Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang, Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt, Slim Gaillard and Slam Stewart, Stuff Smith, Oscar Aleman, Lonnie Johnson, and Eddie South.
From The Spirits of Rhythm and The Mississippi Sheiks, to The Light Crust Doughboys and The Hot Club of France, whether your focus is Early Jazz, Hokum Jazz, Gypsy Swing, Jug Band, or Western Swing, chances are you too are revved-up by the fiery sound of strings churning out the swinging beat and jazzing up hot solos!
Our faculty will include guitarist and contemporary master of 1920’s and 30’s jazz styles, Matt Munisteri; violinist Julian Smedley; bassist Matt Weiner, and guitarist Cyd Smith.
Space is extremely limited in this new workshop – get the full scoop over on our Vintage Jazz Workshop page.
