Joanna Wallfisch - Master Class

$35.00 - Songwriting with Joanna Wallfisch - Baritone UKE - DGBE Tuning

In her Master Class, limited to 5 students, she will then dive deep into the form, whim, and magic of songwriting.

Joanna’s been described by Downbeat Magazine as an "exquisite singer-songwriter", "unique and sublime" by The Telegraph and Jazzwise Magazine said that "her tales have not only a reflective, poetic quality but a directness too, venturing into acoustic country-pop that has echoes of singer-songwriters such as Carole King or Glen Campbell." 

Joanna plays primarily a Baritone Uke, tuned DGBE and is excited to present two workshops in the art of songwriting and arrangement. 

In her Group Class, limited to 10 students, she will perform a variety of her originals and maybe a few of her and possibly your favorite covers and discuss song form, inspiration, the writing and creative process.  

You are invited to bring your own songs, ideas, and workshop them with Joanna in the Master Class format.

Josh Reynolds

$30 - DGBE - Baritone Uke - traditional guitar tuning.

Josh is the president of the Tenor Guitar Foundation.  He took over when our leader and yoda, Mark Josephs passed away  a few years ago.

Josh credits Mark and the Tenor Guitar Gathering for giving him the tools to take over his fathers role in The Kingston Trio.  Nick Reynolds, Josh's father, was a founding member of the KT with Dave Guard and Bob Shane. 

Josh will be going through DGBE Tenor (also called Chicago Tuning or Baritone Uke)

He will discuss how to play this style of tenor with other players - to augment and round out the sound - which his father did in the Trio, by capoing up to 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9th frets!

He will be happy to provide song sheets and MP3's ahead of time to get familiar.
He will also take requests - within reason.  email him at josh@kingstontrio.com
