Of course the Stanley Brothers can’t be there in person, but we’ll have a great time without them as we sing of sing along to their music at another of our great club nights on Wednesday 12 April 2017.
If you can’t manage a Stanley Brother song that’s OK, come along anyway and show us what you can do with something else, ’cause this is a Stanley Brothers theme, not an actual religion.
After all the idea of our Auckland Bluegrass Club nights is to give you an opportunity to practice up and then perform – and there be some bluegrass musicians there to help you with backing if you want. What’s more, some of our best bluegrass evenings have been the club evenings, so it worth coming along even if you aren’t going to perform.
So learn up a Stanley Song now, it’s not that hard – there’s hundreds to choose from.
And after that let’s jam along on three of the Stanley Brothers’ classics:
Man of Constant Sorrow – Key of A
Rank Stranger – 3/4 Key of E
Mountain Dew – Bb (Guitarists – G shapes capo 3)
The Auckland Bluegrass Club is held on the second Wednesday of the month at Room A13 Fort Takapuna, 139-141 Vauxhall Road, Narrow Neck (near Devonport). The Bunker is closed due to safety regulations.
Club nights: members $5, non-members $8 cash at the door.
