Whitetop Mountaineers – Concert and Workshop

by | 24 Mar, 2010

In the leadup to their concert with The Strzelecki Stringbusters in Yinnar on 31st March, Virginia’s Whitetop Mountaineers will be presenting an instrument workshop at 7.30pm in the back room of the Yinnar Community Hotel.

This is a unique opportunity for anyone interested in Fiddle, Clawhammer Banjo and Bluegrass Mandolin, to pick up some tips from these two fantastic Old-Time musicians, Martha Spencer and Jackson Cunningham of the Whitetop Mountaineers. They’ll be discussing their style in detail, providing instrumental tuition and breaking down several songs for those in attendance to learn.

Martha and Jackson are currently in the middle of their 3rd Australian tour, ending at the National Festival at Easter this year.

Tickets are $20.00 with limited numbers.Please contact John Werner on 0400 964 941 or st***********@bi*****.com to secure your place, for old-timey lessons direct from the USA’s richest area for traditional musicians.
