Members of the American Roots Music faculty host a free workshop at the Old Town School of Folk Music introducing this year's American Roots Music Program that will occur on Labor Day in the Colorado Rockies. The OTSFM's very own Stephen Wade will head up the workshop with the help of teaching artists Matt Brown, Peggy Browning, Maria McCullough and Aaron Smith. We'll learn a little about songs and people that came to life in Stephen's book "The Beautiful Music All Around Us." We'll work on some tunes to get us playing together, and finish with a short presentation highlighting both offerings and activities at the renowned Rocky Ridge Music Center. The workshop will be followed by an old-time jam session.
