Arranging Music for Diverse Folk Instruments*
(and Especially Their Instrumentalists!)
*guitars, dulcimers (both types), autoharp, recorders, flutes, bass, voices!
Friday, October 25, 9am-12noon
Presented by pick-up-band conductor/arranger and award-winning musician Lucille Reilly of Denver, Colorado made possible with the generous support of Pope Country Historical Society and Lake Region Arts Council.
Jam to some familiar tunes beyond playing the “right notes.”
See below to download the handouts and audio files and get started, or go to http://www.thedulcimerlady.com/Events.htm
What to bring:
**The handout ReillyWorkshopHandout (three tunes on the two pdf pages), either in a notebook or on a clipboard (for a firm surface to write on). Printed, hard copy is recommended; if you are inclined to load it onto a mobile device, you will need to have a way to mark those virtual handouts, as some chords and other elements may change.
**Pencil with eraser
**Music stand (limited number available on site)
Get ready! Play the tunes and/or chords on your own at home. Listen to them here: http://www.thedulcimerlady.com/links.htm#MN
Playing any or all from memory is fine; just the same, bring hard copies of the tunes to the workshop for reference.
Got strings? Tune them up before heading out the door! (Yes, Lucille realizes that mountain dulcimers may have to re-tune.)What we’ll do:
The group will play each tune to gain comfort playing together, then we’ll draw from the skills, instruments and score to orchestrate each tune as it leads us!

This workshop is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Lake Region Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
