South Petheron, Somerset - 15 and 16 August 2015

Bluegrass / Oldtime Mandolin Workshop with Jesper Rübner-Petersen

During this course Jesper Rübner-Petersen will introduce participants to playing bluegrass/oldtime mandolin. Musical examples will be drawn from standard tunes of various levels of difficulty, giving players a broad overview of these genres. Both solo playing as well as accompaniment will be explored during the course, allowing participants to learn new techniques and develop and refine their existing playing skills.

Exercises for improvisation and short forays into music theory will round off the course material. In addition to the principal themes of bluegrass and oldtime, individual examples taken from swing, jazz and/or Irish folk music may also be included in the course.

Participants will be split into small, individual groups at various points in the programme enabling players to alternate between soloing and accompaniment so they can fully explore the tunes and exercises.

The course is limited to 16 participants to ensure that all players receive personal instruction and supervision. There will be short breaks for refreshments (e.g. coffee, tea and cake) between the individual course sections. This gives participants an ideal opportunity to exchange ideas or take part in small sessions.
