PineCone: Mandolin Tips Workshop with Lorraine Jordan

( Wed., Feb. 24, 2021 )

Online, , , NC


Did you ever wonder why some bands can even put drive behind a slow song? In the workshop, Lorraine Jordan will share secrets on how she gets her solid, hard driving chop! Lorraine will explain the role of the mandolin as the snare drum in the band, and the importance of the bass and mandolin chop working together. This workshop is designed for players of all levels and will focus on tips to make you a stronger mandolin player. Plus, all workshop participants will receive a copy of Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road’s latest CD from Pinecastle Records, Bill Monroe’s Old Mandolin, featuring 2020’s #1 song on the Bluegrass Unlimited charts with the PineCone Bluegrass Radio Show’s very own Larry Nixon.


Registration is required for all workshops, which are hosted online via Zoom. There is a suggested $10 donation per workshop. Donations support both the artist leading the workshop and PineCone.
