Kirkland Brothers Masterclass - Visiting Artist Workshop
Ages: 18 - No Limit
In this workshop, brothers Gary and Clay Kirkland will play a few songs from their concert the night before and will teach you how they did it! Students will split up into two groups and Gary Kirkland, known as the "International Jimmie Rodgers Yodeling Champion" and Kansas City's "Heritage Musician of the Year, 2013", will work with students on yodeling and finger-picking on the guitar. Clay Kirkland, recipient of the "Swallow Hill Music Distinguished Faculty" award, will work with students on country/folk/bluegrass/blues harmonica and harmony singing. Students will then join as a group to perform the songs they have learned!
What to Bring
Please bring harmonicas in the keys of A, C, and G or any other keys you may have and/or your guitar, tuner and fingerpick.
