Ozark Music Preservation Workshop February 23, 2014 Acoustic Shoppe, Springfield Mo.
Chapman's Acoustic shoppe in Springfield Missouri is holding a "Ozark Music Preservation Workshop" on February 23rd with The Foghorn Stringband out of the Portland Oregon area. These folks are coming to share some real fine Old Timey music with local folks who might be interested in "Ozark Music Preservation" These folks from "away" can really play and it's a delight to hear them. I have never attended one of their shows or workshops so I can't tell you how these "away" people are in person. I really do hope there is a great turn out to see some really fine musicianship in the genre we all love. Old Time Music. You never know, some of the bluegrass people might just get that OT bug!!! If you don't know, The Acoustic Shoppe in Springfield Mo. is owned and run by Jeremy Chapman, formerly of the noted Bluegrass band "The Chapmans". This was a particularly fine family band with his Father and brothers. Jeremy was the flatpicking leg of that table and can he pick! I commend them for putting on this workshop even if these folks are from "away". We can all learn from each other right!? Here is the Band's link THE FOGHORN STRINGBAND.
