 BlueGrass Workshop and Jam Session with Chris Walz
Chris Walz

 Saturday May 13, 2017 1-5 PM

Bring your guitar, banjo or mandolin and join us for this outstanding opportunity to learn from Chris as he instructs us on bluegrass techniques and methods -- then puts them into practice in a jam session. Plan on spending the afternoon picking, strumming and singing with your fellow bluegrass friends.

Once the workshop is over, join Chris for the jam session beginning at 3 pm.

Admission is just $10 for Plank Road members and $20 for nonmembers. Cash or check only. All musician levels are welcome! Bring your instrument and join in!
