Harper's Back Porch Revue

Back Porch ReviewFolk, Country, Blue Grass: The Harper College Back Porch Review Plays It All

HARPER’S BACK PORCH REVUE (LMU 0305): Join the ensemble that explores Americana music from the late 19th to the mid-20th Centuries: blues and country, old time, folk, gospel, and more. We welcome string instruments of all sorts: guitars, banjos, fiddles, ukuleles, bass, etc., as well as hand drummers and singers. Players should be able to play in the keys of A, C, D, E, G, at a minimum. Reading music and improvising solos are pluses, but not required. Auditions are held during the first meeting. Free Membership. Members agree to perform at least once per semester. And the course is FREE!

Harper's Back Porch Revue will return in Fall 2018.
