Encouraged by their love of acoustic music, local folk musicians, Larry and Jane Stephenson of Blind Bay are conducting a weekly acoustic music workshop for beginner musicians.

Retired teachers, the Stephenson lead the two-hour workshops at the Carlin Community Arts and Cultural Centre (formerly Carlin Hall) at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays.

This is an entry-level program for individuals wishing to learn an acoustic instrument such as a guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc.

If you have an instrument you would like to learn to play, along with developing a basic understanding of music, this is an opportunity to lean in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Participants will gain an understanding of how to play basic melody, chords and rhythm along with getting a feel for playing in a jam environment.

The cost is $5 per evening. For more information, call Larry or Jane at 250-675-5426.

More advanced players are welcome to join intermediate level acoustic jams for pickers and singers that take place in the South Shuswap.

There is a two-hour, drop-in session at 7 p.m. Wednesdays for $3 a session.

A second intermediate jam takes place Friday mornings at 11 at the Salmon Arm Legion.
