Friday Featured E-Store Item: Washburn B7 Openback Banjo
The EBow is a hand-held electronic bow for guitar. This small battery-powered unit replaces the pick in the right hand letting the guitarist mimic strings, horns, and woodwinds with unbelievable sensitivity. The EBow produces a powerful infinite sustain, rich in harmonics for incredible guitar sounds. Unlike plug-in effects, the Energy Bow does its work on the string itself.
Are you a songwriter who wants to work on playing well with others? Would you like to feel more comfortable introducing your songs in a jam or in a band/performance setting? Are you stuck in a rut with rhythm patterns that dictate your writing? Do you want to know what those other people (bass, rhythm, singers, lead instruments, banjo, etc) are talking about when they say words like “groove”, “pocket”, “space”, “downbeat”, “voicing”, “inversions”…. ? If any of these apply, this workshop is for you.
Be prepared to play, move, improvise and explore the beginner basics of creating drama. Alisha Davidson is a Canterbury High School and Studio 58 Theatre grad. The two-day workshop will dive right in to learning how to study and create a character. Also, learning the elements of scene work (who, what, where etc). On the second day, students will be able to workshop their “works in progress”. The main focus of this class is very simple; having fun and the ability to do something completely wrong…..while having fun!
Stan Rogers’ music has left a lasting impression on countless folk music fans, and the Canadian psyche in general. His song Northwest Passage has become for many, a natural alternative to Canada’s official national anthem equally invoking a sense of country and it’s not uncommon to hear people break into rousing choruses of Barrett’s Privateers at campfires or in pubs across the country and beyond. This is music that lives on, and that has become a part of our Canadian folk music legacy.
This boxed set includes 5 original Stan Rogers albums, a special edition DVD, plus a 5 song EP of rare, never beofre released live recordings of Stan covering songs written by his contemporaries.
