Online classes w/ Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones (Starting Sept. 19, 2022)

Sunday, September 11, 2022

Hello fellow mandolin pickers and enthusiasts!
Hope your summer is going strong with lots of playing and getting to see live music once again.  Erynn and I have been returning to a lot of music camps this year and it's been grand.  The more I teach and play I realize it's all about connecting the dots. One note leads to another, one tune brings another to mind and each person you meet can steer you in new and wonderful directions.  I hope you will consider our new round of online courses starting soon. Info is below. I wish you all the best on your musical journey and hope you can get in a bit of picking everyday. Take good care of your mando and it will return the favor.
Fall Online Music Classes are coming back - yay!

Each group class meets online for an hour a week for 6 weeks on Zoom. Videos of all classes will be recorded and archived so you can miss a class and watch later if you'd like to. Some people in far-flung time zones like to take the class entirely by video. Pdfs of Fiddle music & Mandolin/Guitar music / tab will be provided. Participants are given access to a class folder of all the music/tab/video links. You can download all class videos/music/tab onto your own computer for review.
Cost per 6 session class is $75-$125 (sliding scale: pay what you can). Canadian's can pay the same prices in CAD (Canuck special ?). We’ll learn good technique, Old-Time style, great tunes and some interesting background on many of the great, traditional players! We'll also strive to have fun and create a sense of community in these group classes. We’re so looking forward to seeing friends in these classes again and welcoming folks to join in.
To register just tell us what class you'd like to join by emailing and make your payment via paypal, venmo or check.

Started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of ten after seeing Roy Rogers pick and sing on television. Played in a bluegrass band while in college in North Alabama and started going to many festivals and fiddlers conventions. This was the onset of what has to become a life-long pursuit-- learning traditional fiddle music and making up "ditties". This led to study of banjo, mandolin, guitar and fiddle and touring as part of The Rising Fawn String Ensemble with James Bryan and Norman and Nancy Blake. In the past decade, I've been part of a singing duo with Beverly Smith and taught at many music camps around the country and abroad. I have had songs recorded by The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Rickie Simpkins, Kate Campbell, and others. I tour occasionally as part of The Haints String Band (Jason and Pharis Romero with Erynn Marshall) and sometimes as a duo w/ Erynn Marshall. I also am lucky enough to have opportunities to join w/ Bruce Greene, Don Pedi, and Rob Hinson as they meander through some great old Kentucky tunes. In 2011, I am touring with James Bryan and once again teaching mandolin, songwriting etc. at workshops and camps around the country.
