Jug Band Ensemble
Jug Band Ensemble with Rick Quisol
This course will offer students a chance to explore multiple aspects of this contagiously fun musical style that had its roots in Louisville.
We'll develop a repertoire from the genre which comprised a mix of Tin Pan Alley Jazz, Blues, and Country, and learn skills to play in a friendly, supportive group.
Weekly lessons will teach:
- jug band repertoire including essential chord changes,
- keeping a rhythm on a washboard,
- historical insight from historian Michael Jones,
- how to play the jug,
- how to bring all those elements together in an ensemble.
Open to all levels and instruments, both traditional & homemade.
Jug, washboard, guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, ukulele, bass, kazoo, harmonica, or no instrument at all - come to sing along!
