There will be a THREE HOUR beginning guitar class at the fall festival. It will be on Saturday from 12:30-3:30 pm. This workshop is free with your festival admission.

Shari Wolf - who you will recognize from previous guitar and dulcimer workshops at Tri State - gave us this class description.

"This class is for those interested in learning to play the 6 string acoustic guitar. We'll focus on new players and those that have played just a little. We'll learn about chords and strumming. This will definitely be a 'hands on' class. We'll be singing and playing and you might have sore fingers before we're done. Bring a guitar and we'll get it tuned up and ready to go. There will be several loaners available." ... See MoreSee Less

Northern Indiana Bluegrass Assoc., Inc.Rich McGlew, good eye!!! I had to look twice to figure out what you were talking about. Hadn't noticed that! Oh man, it caught "Ulisse" too! Someone with more savvy than me will have to figure out how to fix that. I probably should have "snipped" it from the pdf version rather than the word version. 🙂

Northern Indiana Bluegrass Assoc., Inc.And don't forget that Thursday is our FREE Community Night. What a great way to get the "Bluegrass Experience". There will be a fish fry (get your tickets early and save $$), and then bands on stage. Bring your instruments and join in on the parking lot picking.

MillieandDennie Sue GilliamReminds me so much of my daddy and hearing his end of the conversation and the excitement buildig, for he loved to play that old bluegrass fiddle. If the archives go back to the year 1987, this was the last festival my daddy played at. The SloasBrothers, Johnny was, is and always will be my daddy. Their is an article in Bluegrass Unlimeted 1987/1988? Daddy with his fiddle is on the cover. Hope and pray this turns out awesome!
