November 2012 Master Class with Gaye Adegbalola

Gaye Adegbalola

We are delighted to announce that Fredericksburg's own Gaye Adegbalola will be teaching a master class.  She writes:

I will be sharing a few of my favorite songs (including a couple I really struggled with) -- song development (hook, lyric, rhythm, melody, chords) and presentation (live, recording, shelved).

By maintaining the blues legacy, Gaye now sees herself as a contemporary griot – keeping the history alive, delivering messages of empowerment, ministering to the heartbroken, and finding joy in the mundane. As a founding member of Saffire – the Uppity Blues Women, she became a full-time performer. (Saffire ended in November, 2009, after making music together for 25 years.)

She has toured nationally and internationally, and has won numerous awards including the prestigious Blues Music Award (formerly the W.C. Handy Award – the Grammy of the blues industry). As of 2012, Adegbalola has 14 CDs in national distribution, including 4 on her own label, Hot Toddy Music. Gaye composes, sings and plays acoustic guitar, slide guitar, and harmonica.

The workshop will be held at Pickers' Supply, 902 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, on Thursday, 29 November 2012, from 7:00 - 9:00.  Tuition for the class is $10.00.
