Recommended Posts

Lewes Saturday Folk Club Workshop No 199
JODY KRUSKAL US OLD-TIME & VINTAGE MUSIC for all concertina systems

Saturday 15th. November 2014 10.45 a.m.- 4.45 p.m. Places £35
Elephant & Castle White Hill Lewes BN7 2DJ


Direct from Brooklyn NY, Jody is a master of the unruly Anglo concertina, squeezing out vintage US tunes & songs that are hilarious, gritty & true - about train wrecks, wrecked marriages, Death Row convicts, lonesome lovers, heroes, losers, braggarts & idlers, often with strong bluesy flavours & fine choruses.

The workshop will present a few American old-time songs & tunes for learning, simple techniques to get that American sound & develop elements of style & accompaniment. Also, participants are asked to prepare a song or tune of their choice (it doesn’t have to be American) to present to the group.

Some music will be sent out in advance.

(£7; advance tickets available from address at the end of this post and from the club website)
