Subject: Music, Storytelling, Folklore
Instructor: Susan Pepper

Even if it's not your own family or bloodline, there's something special about knowing the origins of a song. Join us and discover ballads from Western North Carolina that the instructor learned directly from traditional elder singers. Our emphasis is on singing unaccompanied ballads - and we'll be doing lots of just that! We will also explore ways to deepen expression of these old songs through storytelling, folklore, and individual ballad "practice." All levels welcome.

Tuition: $354.00
