Music Workshop: Learn Some Canal Songs

Music Workshop: Learn Some Canal Songs

Folk music of new york state

Attention folk musicians, bluegrass bands, Irish trad players, casual singers, music teachers and interested others – – the music of the Erie Canal is that of Irish immigrants, Yankee farmers and fiddlers, minstrel show performers, the vaudeville circuit, and the boatmen and women themselves.

Come learn some of this regional “heirloom” music with musician and NY Public Scholar Dave Ruch, who has spent the last fifteen years uncovering the traditional music of the Empire State.

Bring an instrument, a singing voice, a recording device, or just your own self and join us for a really fun and interesting evening.

Tickets are $15 and available by clicking here.
