The Passim School of Music is pleased to announce The Singing Sessions – a brand new educational series that partners with Passim performing artists.


The Singing Sessions was created to reflect the immense and diverse talent that passes through the Club’s doors by inviting performing artists to conduct a workshop on songwriting or singing. The Singing Sessions allows the Passim Community to get a deeper sense of what goes on behind the scenes by exploring an artist’s musical practice and exercises they perform to advance their own skills in a small group setting. Join us for the first Sessions starting this fall! 


American Songster Guitar, Banjo and Bones Workshop with Dom Flemons

Dom Flemons will be presenting a showcase of guitar and banjo styles that he has learned in his travels around the United States. The first half of the workshop will be focusing on guitar and banjo tunings and techniques unique to the Songster tradition. The second half will focus on the rhythm bones, an ancient folk instrument that uses two cow rib bones to produce a magnificent display of rhythm and sound. 
Throughout the performance Dom will be engaging with the audience through story-telling and sharing the history of early songsters. Open to all ages! 
* Guitar and Banjo workshop will be at an intermediate level. 
* Bones workshop will be at a beginners level.  Bones will be available for purchase after the workshop.
Dom Flemons was a previous member of The Carolina Chocolate Drops. You can find out more about Dom on his website, here.
Dom Flemons will be performing downstairs at Club Passim that evening. Keep the musical day going - purchase tickets for the show here.
