|It was a great
weekend. I thought that the Friday Jam Session was great! It was still
going strong at 11pm when I left. People sang, danced and played their
hearts out. Besides banjos, we had a piano, tuba, accordion, sax, bass
sax, washboard and probably a couple of other instruments that I didn't see.
Saturday workshops were very well attended. There
were 15 students at the first beginner session and 5 at the afternoon one.
The double sessions by Dave Frey were standing room only!!
Then after dinner, the group agreed to revert back to
the off-the-wall method where the music is projected to a large screen.
With this as the common starting point, players began together, and
the songs sounded very well -- everyone was in the same key!!! :-)
