Institute of Musical Traditions presents a workshop with Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer and Chao Tian  - Fusing the Music From China To Appalachia and Beyond at 7pm. FREE ADMISSION.

School of Musical Traditions
7112 Willow Ave., Takoma Park, MD

Co-presented by the Institute of Musical Traditions and the Asian Arts & Culture Center at Towson University. Supported in part by a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.

Part workshop, part masterclass, the program will give a detailed view of their instrumentation, particularly the lesser known Yanqin (Chinese Hammered Dulcimer), along with five-string banjo, cello banjo, gourd banjo, mandolin, ukulele and percussion. The band will co-show how they fuse their eclectic musical instruments and ideas for both an arranged piece and an improvised piece of music. If people bring instruments, they will teach 1 Chinese tune that easily adapts to American old-time instruments. Q & A to follow and a last tune.
