Handmade at Home Virtual Guitar Workshop Series: Karen Celia Heil

February 4 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm


Join us for oldtime guitar backup workshops online this winter!

Handmade Music School has asked 4 of our favorite guitar playing pals to share a little time with us online this winter discussing, demonstrating and teaching their award winning and distinctive guitar styles.

Karen Celia Heil Workshop

As a guitar player, what is your role when playing with others, be it your band, a duo, a jam, or even just yourself and your voice? How do you listen and decide what’s needed? Do you have the skills and knowledge to fulfill the role well? If the above questions cause you to break into a sweat and wonder where to begin, or you are a good player wanting to sound  even better, I’ll do my best to give you some step by steps and simple to advanced tips and tricks.


These hour and a half long workshops will be a great opportunity to hear some really inspiring music, learn some new insights and techniques, and reconnect with your community in the cold dark of winter.  The loose format of these sessions will be:

  • a short intro where each artist is either interviewed by the Handmade Music staff, or talks a little about themselves and their approach to stringband music and guitar back-up
  • plays a few of their favorite recordings of guitar backup, talks about why they love them
  • plays a few tunes with a friend or 3
  • teaches a tune or song or 3
  • a question and answer zoom hangout session

Handmade Music School’s Joebass (who curated this lineup) will kick the series off on December 19th with his own guitar class in which he will feature recordings of the 4 guest instructors as well as a few of his own tips and tricks.

Price is pay what you can with a strongly suggested donation of $25 and a minimum $5.
