Online Family Program: Beginning Acoustic Guitar: Jimmie Rodgers Style

Nov 21, 202010:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Known as the Father of Country Music, Jimmie Rodgers developed an enduring musical style of his own by drawing from the folk music of his southern upbringing, the work chants of railroad section crews, and, most importantly, Black American blues. In this program, participants will learn about the man whose music influenced Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, and Howlin’ Wolf, and take a virtual look at Rodgers’s 1928 Weymann acoustic guitar, on display in the museum’s Precious Jewel exhibit. Museum educator Adam Ollendorff will guide participants through the fundamentals of Rodgers’s playing style and lead the group in song. Ollendorff has toured and recorded with Kacey Musgraves and John Oates. Recommended for ages seven and up, but all are welcome. Guardian is required to be present for children under thirteen.

 

Takes place via Zoom. Space is limited. Registration required. Free.
