Workshop Detail

Sonic Rewrites Workshop with Hearth & Hymn
You know that old split where you love a melody but you’re miffed by the message? Rewriting is a gateway into writing original music and a powerful, subversive part of the folk tradition. One of our motivations as Hearth & Hymn is to center the feminine and soften the binary in the old songs that move us. We often replace loaded imagery and pronouns with more inclusive, expansive language. The art of rewriting is a potent practice; it can make timeless melodies accessible to those whose values and realities aren’t often reflected. We invite you to come reimagine a song with us. We’ll open by sharing a rewrite of our own. After a brief discussion, we’ll break into group and/or solo writing spaces. Expect song lists, brainstorms, prompts, experimentation and general fun-poking at the ill fitting lyrics in our lives. To close, a few brave rewriters among us can sing or speak their works in progress.

Round Peak Fiddle Workshop with Ben Thompson of New Hoosier Broadcasters
An in-depth study on the fast-paced fiddle and banjo duets of the Round Peak Tradition, specifically focused on Tommy Jarrell and Charlie Lowe. Focus will be on bowing techniques and stylistic characteristics that define the early Round Peak sound, and how they interact with the banjo to create hard-driving square dance music.
