Tas Cru to perform - AND TEACH - at Tall City Blues Fest

Tas Cru of New York is among the artists coming to Midland later this month to perform - AND to teach an MC music workshop - at this year's Tall City Blues Fest. Here's a sample of Cru in performance ...

Midland College, in partnership with Tall City Blues Fest, presented by Mazda of Midland/Odessa, announces the line-up of educational workshops scheduled for Saturday, July 26. The educational workshops are being held in conjunction with the 2014 Festival, which will be held July 25-27. All workshops will be located inside designated rooms at the Doubletree Hotel, and 100 percent of the registration proceeds are donated to provide scholarships for KIDS' College at MC.

By Tas Cru
Made possible by Roger & Lynne Clark
1-2 PM, Ages: 10+
Min: 2 Max: 12
Doubletree Parlor 1117
$15/pre-registration | $20/walk-up registration

Participants will learn about developing meaningful song topics, utilizing traditional and non-traditional blues song structures and making words work with rhythm and rhyme. Performance and song content are only part of what makes a good song, so 2014 Keeping the Blues Alive recipient, Tas Cru, will help songwriters craft lyrics that make their songs engaging and memorable in this interactive workshop. Participants will leave with a solid working draft of their own blues song.
What to Bring: Song ideas and drafts of working lyrics. Participants that also play guitar or use a guitar as a songwriting tool are welcome to bring their guitar, but not required

Eight different workshops are included in this year’s offerings and are available to everyone - not just to Festival attendees. Most workshops are geared for adults and youth.
