Event description
Old-Time Songs for Singers Workshop with Jen Larson and Phyllis Elkind

About this event

This is an online workshop for people who like to sing!  The songs will be from the Old-Time repertoire of the 1920s and 1930s.  Groups like The Carter Family, Coon Creek Girls, Charlie Poole and more.  Some songs will be familiar, some will have harmony, and some will be new additions to your repertoire.  You will also learn more about the history of the genre and its artists.  

Jen Larson is a Nashville-based vocalist and the Archives Manager for the Grand Ole Opry Archives. Jen draws deeply from the early country and bluegrass music catalogs; she has garnered critical praise for her work with the former band, Straight Drive. She has performed widely, with appearances at New York City’s Town Hall for several live broadcasts of Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion”, at the Wheeling Jamboree, Carnegie Hall, and many other regional and national festivals and concerts.

Phyllis Elkind is a long-time member of the Folk Music Society, where she met bandmates for Triboro, an Americana trio with two CDs to its name, and CrossStitch, a duo focused on fiddle tunes and brother duets.  Her most recent group is Grand Central Breakdown, an all-woman band, which plays bluegrass and country covers.  Phyllis is also a long-time teacher and teaches harmony at Jalopy Theatre and Doo Wop at the McBurney YMCA.
