Traditional Lullabies

Traditional Lullabies with Brian Dolphin & Elizabeth LaPrelle

We will teach some of our favorite American traditional lullabies - mostly from Elizabeth's family - that we have arranged for 2 and 3 part harmony. Depending on interest, we might also throw in a Georgian and/or Ukrainian lullaby.

This class is presented in collaboration with John C. Campbell Folk School and Lessonface. Class capacity is 12 students. Registration closes on October 13, 2023. Students are invited to attend a large group Orientation and Closing Ceremony to connect with various classes online.
