Guitar Workshop by Greg Stone on Saturday, Dave Elliot is talent scouting Friday's Open Mic

Greg Stone will be giving a guitar workshop this Saturday, March 3rd at Taborgrass from 11:30am to 12:45pm. He will cover various picking exercises for your warm ups. We will also practice some two note arpeggios and double stops up the neck to enhance your leads. Free with class admission.

And here's a reminder about Friday night's Open Mic! We will be looking for bluegrass bands with members from Taborgrass alumni to perform at Dave Elliot’s “Taborgrass Night” at his Saturday evening show on April 14th at the Multnomah Grange 71. We are looking for bands that actually play BLUEGRASS MUSIC.

It should be lots of fun! This event has become very popular. Of course, every genre is welcome. If you don’t want to perform, please come and be a supportive, appreciative audience member.
