Traditional Tunes for Nontraditional Instruments – Katie Gotshall

Pack your trumpet, flute, saxophone, bassoon, zither, hurdy gurdy, or whatever instrument you have stashed in the closet and have been afraid to play with other old time groups.  We’ll talk about the logistics of transposing, the technicalities of playing with quite string groups, and how to embellish and add color to traditional old time groups.  We’ll include a mini tune book of 20 Reels, Jigs, Hoedowns, Squares, and Waltzes, pre-transposed for F, Bb, and Eb instruments.  Traditional instruments (Fiddles, Mandolins, Guitars, etc) and instrumentalists are definitely welcome too!
