Reflecting with Song: Music Workshop with Dave Ruch
Thursday, June 15 from 7pm – 9pm at the Erie Canal Museum
Syracuse New York is home to an active community of folk musicians, fiddlers, bluegrass bands, and singers and players of Irish traditional music. The local and regional “heritage” repertoire of canal music shares lots of common musical ground with these genres, and yet, seems to be under-represented at local jam sessions and musical events. This workshop with musician and canal music researcher Dave Ruch (www.daveruch.com), with Dick Ford of Signature Music, will introduce songs and instrumental pieces from canal days, passing along to area musicians some truly regional folk music while inviting reflections and comparisons with their current repertory. This workshop is limited to 15 participants.
The fee for the workshop is $12 for Museum members and $15 for the general public. It is important to us that these workshops are available to everyone, so we have a limited number of scholarships available for each.

Reflections on Erie’s Waters is made possible with funding from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
