The past few years at Fiddle Tunes, we’ve had some excellent swing musicians on staff. In reviewing the workshop evaluations, it is clear that you musicians are into this ‘swing thing,’ AND that you want more.
We heard you, and are pleased to offer a special weekend in May just for you. We’ve invited Paul Anastasio, Mike Dowling, Jennifer Scott, and Cary Black to conduct a Swing Intensive, May 8-11, 2008.
The world of swing is a big one, but with this intensive long weekend the focus will be on "vintage swing", classics from the 30’s and 40’s that will include jump blues, and western swing, instrumentals as well as vocals. Morning sessions will be devoted to technique, while afternoons will include a faculty-led band lab that will demonstrate how to "put it all together."
Please visit the Swing Intensive page to learn more and to register–space is very limited in this special weekend. Hope to see you there!
