Barn Dance Band Practice
2nd Saturdays, 2-4 PM (September through April)
The Barn Dance Band Practice is open to anyone who wants to strengthen their skills in participating in playing for the Plank Road Barn Dance Parties (held about three times a year). Recommended for intermediate to advanced players. However, if you would prefer starting to build skills at more of an introductory level, watch for workshops and classes through Plank Road Folk Music Society designed to teach the basic building blocks of band playing skills and/or building fiddle tune repertoire so less experienced players can better keep up at the practice sessions. Additionally, there is a page on the Plank Road website (in progress) that is contains chord sheets and MP3 files to assist in learning the tunes more commonly played at Plank Road Dances. (Go to www.plankroad.org and click on Favorites and then Stringband Materials.)
Monthly: 2nd Saturday, 2-4 PM (September through April)
