ERIC THOMPSON will conduct a FLATPICKING GUITAR WORKSHOP at Noon on Saturday, March 28, 2009, at Kellie Allen’s house in Oxford, PA (Chester County). Eric will share the secrets of his approach to flatpicked lead guitar, drawing on licks, breaks, and tunes from Don Reno, Doc Watson and Clarence White, all of whom inspired his own playing. While aimed for the intermediate to advanced player, beginners will learn a lot even if they feel they aren't keeping up. An audio recording device is encouraged, but no video please. Tuition is $40 and requires advance registration. Space is limited for this workshop, so please contact me (Kellie Allen) as soon as you can.

For more about Eric:
Eric Thompson has been considered a pioneer in the bluegrass guitar world since his teenage years. Among his earliest bands were the Black Mountain Boys (with Jerry Garcia and David Nelson). He quickly became nationally known as an exceptional lead flatpicker, with a first place award in the World Championship Cup at Union Grove, North Carolina with the New York Ramblers (which also included David Grisman and Winnie Winston) and flying to Nashville, Tennessee to record Beatle Country with the Charles River Valley Boys. Eric's first solo LP, "Bluegrass Guitar", featured an all-star band including David Grisman and Tony Rice, and was released in 1979 on Kicking Mule; it has been reissued, with additional duet tracks with David Grisman, as "Thompson's Real". A duet album with guitarist Alan Senauke, "Two Guitars", featured a more eclectic mix ranging from American bluegrass to Irish reels to Greek rembetika, pre-figuring today's "world music" genre
