Blues Guitar Workshop
with Samuel James
With a voice of grit and gravel, roots musician Samuel James sings with an authenticity lost in time. A modern blues guitar master, James’ skill has a depth and range that seems impossible for a man with only two hands.
In this blues guitar lecture, demonstration, and workshop, James shares the history and techniques of the blues and the different regions in which it developed. The second half of the evening includes a hands-on skills workshop detailing nuances of Piedmont and Delta blues chord structures and singing styles.
Please note that hands-on instruction is intended for intermediate and advanced guitar players, though all are welcome to attend the lecture and observe the workshop.
This performance is part of Strathmore’s Shades of Blues festival. Check out the full line-up.
