About Blues Extravaganza:
Violinists and vocalists invented the style we call “the blues.” Without the blues, we might not have Boogie Woogie, rock, pop, or possibly even swing! This style even influenced traditional Appalachian fiddling. We’ll explore techniques from the early blues fiddlers as well as the dynamic ingredients needed to jam over 12-bar blues. Let’s boost your Superpowers in this style.
