Playing the harmonica is a great way to lift your spirits. Playing in a group is more fun than you can imagine. All levels of skill from beginner to experienced are invited to this combo of class, jam session, and performance. Everyone learns cool songs and then has a lot of fun playing those songs together. A longtime popular instructor, we're thrilled to have Clay Kirkland return to CFU for this special event. Clay has had a 45 year career, performing with Chuck Berry, the Flobots, and many more. He was twice a featured soloist with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. Currently Clay performs in the trio Trunko, Kirkland, and Kull; his rock and blues band, Key on a Kite; and with his brothers as the Kirkland Brothers. He teaches for Swallow Hill Music School. Clay starts by explaining how he gets his sound and shows you some easily attainable skills. Then we move into an hour of jamming together on at least four blues, country, rock and roll, and folk songs. Clay will provide you with easy to read harmonica tablature, give everyone a part to play that matches their level of skill, and we'll be jamming! In the second class meeting, Stef Kull, one of Clay's great musician friends will join us on piano. We'll be a band and have a blast!
Bring two ten-hole, "diatonic", harmonicas, one in the key of A and one in the key of C, and any other keys you may have; bottled water; paper and pencil. To purchase harmonicas, the folks at the Denver Folklore Center are quite knowledgeable and helpful.
