Old Songs instrument classes fall 2017

Old songs jam session

You might recognize Old Songs as the organizer of the ongoing series of events that feature traditional music and dance. And the schedule for the fall season -- which is out now -- includes folk, blues, bluegrass, Celtic, Americana, and holiday music.

But Old Songs also organizes a series of classes for learning how to play the instruments involved in traditional music. Or, to put it another way, if you want to learn how to play the accordion or ukulele, Old Songs can probably help.

The slate of Old Songs classes for the fall is out -- here's a quick overview...

Group classes are $127 for six-week courses and $161 for eight-week courses. They're taught at the Old Songs building in Voorheesville. See the Old Songs website for class descriptions and registration info.
