Workshops for the blues

Musicians can get some professional help during a series of workshops at the Blues Underground.

Bill Johnson hosts three two-part guitar workshops Saturday (Jan. 12) and Jan. 26. Beginner level will start at noon, followed by intermediate at 2 p.m. and advanced level at 4 p.m.

Participants will practise work they are given over the two weeks until the next workshop. Levels will run at the same time as the previous workshop.

Cost is $50 per person with attendance limited to 15 people. Participants need a guitar and an amp.

Jerry Paquette, with Raincoast Studios and Coal Town Records, leads a sound and stage technician workshop Jan. 19 at 1 p.m.

The workshop will show participants how to prepare for a stage show by setting up the sound mixing board, the PA and other sound equipment, plus running the equipment during a performance.

Participants will have the opportunity to practise at the weekly jam sessions at the Blues Underground.

Cost is $30 with attendance limited to 20 people.

Register for workshops at the Tuesday or Thursday jam sessions at the Blues Underground, 10 Lois Lane, or contact Tom Dodge at 751-1516 or Tony Bridge at TonyBridge@shaw.ca.
