Bluegrass and Old-Time Mandolin with Caleb Klauder (Foghorn )
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Workshop
In this workshop youll learn a few tunes by ear and then work on techniques to get around the fingerboard easier. Additional time will be spent on tone and rhythm, including solo playing to demonstrate some of the different sounds the mandolin can produce. A basic knowledge of chords and scales is helpful and beginners, while welcome, may feel a bit left behind as attention will be paid to keep more advanced players moving forward in their playing. As always, questions are appreciated.
Caleb Klauder hails from Portland, Ore. He cut his musical teeth in well-travelled northwest folk-rock group Calobo, who put out five self-released titles throughout the 90s. He currently plays mandolin and sings with internationally acclaimed old-time ensemble, The Foghorn Stringband. His first solo record ...Sings Out was released on Padre Records in 2000 and featured a combination of self-penned folk, rocknroll and country music. His new disc, Dangerous Mes And Poisonous Yous, is a collection of originals and covers in the honky-tonk vein. More on Caleb at calebklauder.com.
