Ryan McKasson Workshop October 17th

We’ll start off the year with Ryan McKasson, our talented, and well-informed friend from Tacoma. The free workshop will be October 17, starting at 2 pm on Zoom.  If you are not receiving our workshop emails, write to m.thumma@mac.com to be put on the list, and receive your link to the workshop. Here’s Ryan’s website for further information.

Ryan has the following ideas for this year’s workshop, including a special look at this part of Scottish music history and the Gow Collection:

“I will teach a tune or two by Neil Gow and talk a bit about his history and the history of his volumes of tune collections, and also the history of printed music in Scotland in general, and its importance in Scottish music history. It will obviously be a brief look at all of this, but I think it will be a nice introductory look at this part of Scottish music history, and also get a good tune out of the deal too.”

This workshop is a part of our effort to support musicians, who have had most of their work and livelihood taken away during the pandemic.  We’ll provide a tip jar for Ryan for those able to do so. Tips are greatly appreciated when possible.

***The Zoom link will be sent out by email on Saturday, Oct. 16th. To prepare for this workshop, make sure that you have the latest version of Zoom on your computer, or whatever device you might be using. Here’s how.

Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday!
