Guitar Workshop with Ben Winoski and Jeff Storry. We will be talking about chords and scales and how they relate to the music the band plays. We will talk about technique and provide handouts. The workshop is aimed at the intermediate guitarist. You do not need to know how to read music to participate. The cost of the workshop is $50, which includes your ticket to the evening performance.

Ben Winoski is a very busy and focused guitar player, spending most of
his free time writing and arranging material for both solo guitar and
for his band. His solo music can be described as instrumental acoustic
guitar covering many genres. Ben’s music crosses between Celtic,
Latin, ragtime, blues, folk, jazz and pop. Exploring both finger style
and flat-picking techniques, Ben has approached the guitar unlike most
others. Ben is mainly self taught aside from some early instruction.
When Ben first started playing, he began to experiment with various
altered tunings and found it was much easier to obtain really open
sounding arrangements using them. Influenced by many guitar players,
Ben has been especially interested in the music of Don Ross, Leo
Kottke, Michael Hedges and Alex Degrassi. Utilizing open tunings,
capos, technical ability and a working knowlwdge of music theory, Ben
is as exciting to watch in person as he is just to listen to.

Jeff Storry has played guitar for over 25 years in various rock, blues, and metal bands. Jeff has been available for private instruction most of that time and has a working knowledge of music theory as it applies to the different styles he plays. Storry has also performed hundreds of times in Saskatchewan as well as on tours in Canada and the US.
