Festival Workshops - check 'em out!

Brendan Shafer and Tony Holmquist from the Six Dollar String Band will be teaching an old-time fiddle and banjo workshop on Sunday at 1 PM.

Workshops are a Four Corners Folk Festival tradition. Whether you're a musician looking for tips and advice, or a fan hoping for insight into the creative process of a performer, the workshop tent is a great place to be.

The workshop tent is located just up the gravel road passed the old log cabin, in the middle of a grassy meadow, surrounded by ponderosa pines. It's an intimate setting where no amplification is required, because you're right there in front of the musicians.

Players are encouraged to bring their instruments in case there's an opportunity to play along, but non-players are equally welcome to just sit and take it all in.

Workshops are open to all festival-goers with a valid wristband for the day.
