Come on out and hear San Diego’s own homegrown Virtual Strangers in a three-part lecture-concert series. Band members Mike and Yvonne Tatar, Kit Birkett, and Jon Cherry bring a series of informative and engaging presentations on everything you wanted to know about bluegrass but weren’t sure if you should ask!
The Virtual Strangers will put into easy and entertaining language bluegrass music basics, the history of bluegrass, and current bluegrass music. Plan to attend these presentations to learn about bluegrass instruments, bluegrass harmony singing, how bluegrass music came to be, and what bluegrass is today.
Listen and learn from the down-home style of the Virtual Strangers as they tell the story about this unique American musical art form called bluegrass!
Each 35-minute lecture will be followed by a 45-minute bluegrass music concert.
Date: May 28, 2013
The History of Bluegrass: The roots and growth of bluegrass music is explored. As America grew, so grew its music and bluegrass.
