The annual Winter Blues program features vocal and instrumental workshops (guitar, bass, harmonica, keyboards & drums), as well as concentration on blues composition and improvisation. Sessions are open to area musicians from 8-18 years old.
Workshops and rehearsals run in December after Christmas and conclude with a blues jam in the Redstone Room.
These sessions will be lead by RME’s Ellis Kell & Bret Dale, as well as Hal Reed of the Mississippi V
alley Blues Society, and will feature other veteran blues musicians from the region as special guests for these workshop sessions. The focus will be on sharpening one’s individual skills and expressing oneself through the blues roots form - by learning how to improvise, and also through the composition of original blues lyrics and music.
Winter Blues will consist of five ½ day sessions from Dec 26-30. Sessions will be held from 1-5 pm on site at River Music Experience in the RME Performance Hall, the Redstone Room and on the Sound Lab. Winter Blues concludes with a special Blues Jam event in the Redstone Room on Friday, December 30th, 2016 starting at 6pm.
The cost is $175 per participant, with payment in full due with completed registration form by no later than December 15th. (We will make a determination at that time whether or not we have sufficient interest to proceed with this workshop series.)
