Taborgass Returns!

 Hey Taborgassers!

I'll cut to the chase: Taborgass returns October 15!

We're really excited to get things rolling again this year, and wanted to let you know what things will look like this year.

Taborgass classes will be switching to a monthly basis, meeting 12 to 4pm at Waverly on the third Saturday of each month. We're working on how best to fill the gaps between classes - maybe some jams, zoom classes, or other workshops? Let us know what you'd like to see!

We'll be in touch soon with more details! Hope your summers have been full of good jams and good friends. See you soon!

Taborgrass Update

 Hey Taborgrassers!

Our Omicron-hiatus from Taborgrass has carried us into the time of year when Taborgrass usually wraps up until Fall. Kaden's about to head out on the road with his band for the summer, so we're taking stock and seeing if there's some Taborgrass happenings we can keep running through the Summer. As soon as we've got something figured out, it'll be posted here and sent out in the newsletter. 

Thanks for picking, hope to see you soon!

Taborgrass start date postponed

 Hey Taborgrassers,

Given where Covid numbers are at in Portland, we'll be postponing Taborgrass return for at least the first two weeks in February. In case you missed them the first time around, here's some ideas of things to do in the meantime:

Listen to all the songs and tunes we've learned so far on the Taborgrass Playlist
Appreciate this recording of Tony Rice forgetting lyrics on stage 
Play along with backing tracks like these
Learn all the words to that song you've been meaning to work on over at John Kael's bluegrasslyrics.com
Get a lesson on music theory, Pythagoras, and the secret of bluegrass from Carlton Haney and Jimmy Martin

We'll keep you all posted, hope to see you soon.
