 Nigel Gatherer's BMG Workshops
BMG Summer School 2024

Old Time is American folk music of a type which is sometimes called "Hillbilly Music" or "String Band Music", and predates Bluegrass. I have had a great love for this music for many years, and I'm delighted to present a workshop on Old Time Music - open to all instruments - at the BMG Summer School, June 2024.

During the course we'll explore old time music, learn some great OT tunes and songs and associated technique, and become a hillbilly string band.

The music will be available beforehand, along with soundfiles.
