TALENT NEEDED: Scholarships Available for Otis Taylor Trance Blues Festival November 10th
Want to play with a legend? Join international blues artist Otis Taylor for the extraordinary Trance Blues Jam Festival. Unlike traditional music festivals where the audience is mostly passive, you are the rock star at the Trance Blues Jam Festival (TBJF). TBJF encourages and inspires people to be active participants. The point is to create music together. Led by Taylor’s infectious mastery, fed by his band’s passion, and wed with your musical expression, the trance jam is where you get to live your musical dreams.
The TBJF is designed for players of all types, all ages, and all ability levels to join in. It’s all about creating music together, not someone showing how well they can shred the guitar. It doesn’t matter what you play. Last year’s festival included vocalists, guitars, harmonicas, oboes, banjos, flutes, cellos, drums, violins, recorders, tambourines, maracas, mandolins and more.
The workshops are during the day Saturday the 10th leading up to the Grand Jam in the evening.
All Saturday events are held at eTown Hall in Downtown Boulder (1535 Spruce Street).
Workshop participants will join with Mr. Taylor and Visiting Artists ( Mato Nanji, Chuck Campbell, Jason Ricci, Rex Peoples, and many more) for both the morning and afternoon sessions. The evening performance will feature the Visiting Artists. Participants will find a wide variety of dining options available for lunch and dinner in Downtown Boulder.
Tickets for the workshop or concert can be purchased at eTown
The Colorado Blues Society is a sponsor of TBJF will be offering student scholarships once again to the workshop as well. If interested, send an email to [email protected]
