Jess Eliot Myhre and Chris Ousley, founding members of the Bumper Jacksons, will conduct an afternoon harmony-singing workshop for all ages.
They will introduce the basics of harmony singing and teach participants how to hear a chord, find a harmony line, and sing in the phrasing of the lead. The group will learn songs from the old-time canon and be singing in three-part harmony by the end.
FREE with your purchase of a Bumper Jacksons concert ticket; $5/person otherwise.
Take the workshop, grab a bite to eat, then return in time for the 7PM concert!
