Old-Time Jam Favorites

  • Paul's House Louisville, Colorado (map)

Learn an exciting version of a standard jam session tune like "Soldier's Joy," "Mississippi Sawyer," or "Forked Deer." Even if you know a version of the tune we choose, you'll likely gain a new insight into variations you can incorporate as well as new bowing ideas. Matt will pay equal attention to the bowing patterns and to the melody. The tune will be taught phrase by phrase in a call-and-response fashion. Recording is highly encouraged. This workshop is recommended for intermediate players with some experience playing in the key of D.

This workshop will be followed by another focused on John Morgan Salyer’s style.

Each workshop is $25. To pay in advance, send your money via Venmo to @mattbrownsdream. Otherwise, payment can be made in cash or via personal check at the workshop(s).


RSVP via the Contact Page to reserve your spot and receive the address for the workshops and/or the jam. The jam is free!
