Southern Appalachian Gospel Singing w/Alex Caton & Peter Winne
The film O Brother, Where Art Thou? exposed many new ears to great old spirituals and hymns like "Angel Band," "Down to the River to Pray," and "O Death." Alex Caton and Peter Winne are hosting a class that explores the roots of this music. After briefly examining the history of the various sacred Appalachian singing traditions that led to what we now call bluegrass and southern gospel, the duo will lead the class in singing. Possible material covered may include "lined-out" Primitive and Old Regular Baptist hymns, bluegrass gospel, basic harmony singing, and both black and white spirituals. If you like the music of Ralph Stanley, Hazel Dickens, or Ginny Hawker then you'll enjoy this workshop. No instruments necessary; just bring your singing voices. Singers of all levels and ages are welcome.

Alex Caton plays music that feels as much at home in a modern, big city venue as it would have at the Grand Ole Opry in the 1940s. Joined by her musical partner Pete Winne, this duo plays a dynamic mix of driving Appalachian fiddle tunes, classic country, gospel, and original songs. Alex has toured the states and Europe extensively over the last decade, nurturing and sharing the heritage of old-time music; and Pete and Alex toured Europe in 2010 to promote Alex's newest release, the "Sinners and the Saved," which was recorded at roots-rock legend Levon Helm's Studio in Woodstock, NY this past winter. With their seamless vocal blend, fiery fiddling, and haunting clawhammer banjo-playing, Alex and Pete forge the newest link in central Virginia's unusually rich acoustic music lineage.
