Trad folk on the pianoP Friday April 12, 8:00pm to 8:50pm, Middle School Auditorium Stage [show on grid]
The great ballads, jigs, reels, hornpipes, and sea chanties of traditional folk music translate beautifully for piano. Songs of the folk tradition, which are usually played on stringed instruments, can find a wonderful home on the keyboard; the folk piano player can weave together both melody and accompaniment in a rich and interesting way or use the piano to support another soloist. We will explore the many ways piano is a true trad folk instrument.
