In this class, we'll learn songs from Volume 4 of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music (the follow-up to the original anthology that was planned by Harry Smith in 1952 but not released until 2000), including songs recorded between 1927 and 1940 by such artists as The Carter Family, The Memphis Jug Band, Lead Belly, The Monroe Brothers, and other greats. 

Open to guitarists who know the basic chords. We'll encounter other material along the way, but if you're comfortable with the following chords, you'll be fine: C, D, G, A, E, F, Am, Em, Dm, B7, E7, A7, D7, G7. Ukuleles, Mandolins and other strumming instruments are welcome to join and learn the songs, but there will be supplemental material handed out that is specific to the guitar. These classes will be held on Zoom.
