John Hartford Ensemble
John Hartford Ensemble with Blakeley Burger
From steamboats to steam-powered aeroplanes, explore the multitude of repertoire by Americana-music pioneer, John Hartford. Credited by Sam Bush for the very existence of the “Newgrass” genre, Hartford’s one-man band paved the way for the development of Americana, Country, Old-time, Bluegrass and Newgrass music.
This eight-week ensemble course is open to competent/advanced singers and players of any instrument. The content will cover a broad range of challenging repertoire including his most popular hits like “Gentle on My Mind,” to his unrecorded fiddle tunes recently published in “John Hartford’s Mammoth Collection of Fiddle Tunes.”
Open to all, ages 11 and up.
