R&B Camp 2011 kicks off Saturday morning at G.W. Graham middle-secondary school — exclusively for music students from Grade 7 to Grade 12 in School District #33.

“Here’s a chance for young musicians to learn what to do when they’re playing live R&B music with other musicians,” says Lori Paul of Spiderlodge Studio.

Last year the event organized by Spiderlodge and G.W. Graham was dubbed Song Salon culminating in a songwriters’ circle, but this year the focus is on workshops for individual instruments, with a free afternoon concert open to the public.

The instrumental workshops get underway at 11 a.m., and the live concert/jam on stage in the G.W. Graham theatre starts at 1 p.m.

R&B Camp at G.W. Graham, Sat. June 11, $30.00 (with lunch & t-shirt). Registration at G.W. Graham office. Workshops will range from guitar (bring guitar and small amp), lead vocals, horn players (bring instruments), keyboards and background vocalists.
