Winter Workshop 2 (online): Mountain Songs for the Soul

February 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$8 – $12

“Mountain Songs for the Soul” comes from the idea that singing traditional ballads and folk songs can strengthen us for hard times as well as help us celebrate the good times. Rooted in Southern Appalachian song traditions, musician Susan Pepper will pick from some of her favorites, explore where they come from —and teach them in this interactive and fun workshop. “Mountain Songs for the Soul” is for anybody who wants to explore the role that singing plays in their lives as well as learn a few songs from the Blue Ridge Mountains to carry forward. Think of these mostly old songs as something you can have in your own life’s “toolkit”. The Zoom platform is well suited for unaccompanied singing as singers can sing along without the pressure of being heard by others. A PDF with lyrics will be provided for attendees.
