Ukulele Workshop and Concert
Greenblatt & Seay’s Schoolhouse Performance Series features a Ukulele Workshop and Concert on Sunday, April 8, at 2:30 PM. Bring your own uke to this hands-on workshop geared for those who know enough first position chords to be comfortable playing at ukulele play-alongs and are anxious to learn to play up the neck.
The overall goal is to demystify a few basic music theory concepts. Using play-along exercises and example tunes we’ll step by step our way thru a little elemental musical math. Those who choose to leave their ukes at home can enjoy the spectacle of good folks striving for advancement, plus the performance/demos of assorted folk and classic rock tunes played on a variety of ukes. This workshop should last about 90 minutes.
This event will be downstairs in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse, and followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even have a jam session. Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.
Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.For more information, write to Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221, or e-mail them at email@example.com.
