Originally from Italy, the mandolin is a popular sound in bluegrass and country music. Led by multi-instrumentalist Jeff Burke, participants in this beginner workshop will learn basic chords, strumming techniques, and a few tunes. Burke has taught group instrument and ensemble classes at the Folk School of St. Louis, and he runs the bluegrass jamming classes at the Station Inn in Nashville. Bring your own mandolin or borrow one of ours.
This activity takes place in the Museum's Taylor Swift Education Center and is designed for guests ages 7 and up.
