Old Time Week – July 18-23, 2021

Old-Time Week for SGOnline will delve into the rich music, dance, and singing traditions of the southern Appalachians. We feature some of the most notable master musicians, singers, and dancers from across the Appalachian region, all of whom are excellent teachers and experienced with online instruction. The many diverse offerings enable students to explore new areas: fiddlers sing, singers dance, and dancers learn to play instruments.

Students enroll in as many as three regular classes during the week, and in the evenings there will be virtual tune sessions and song circles that all can enjoy including the Old-Time Social Open Mic on Thursday Night! In addition, this year, folk legend Janis Ian will be offering her “Master Class in Artistry” during all five weeks of SGOnline. For youth, we offer two fun and engaging classes: Teen Gathering, a class specifically for teenagers and Young Old-Time, a music class for young players.
