HVBA is excited to offer classes through Vassar College's Lifelong Learning Institute! This spring, six classes hosted by world-class Hudson Valley bluegrass musicians will teach about the history, the instruments, and the players that make the genre.
Our classes have so far featured Tara Linhardt on mandolin, Keith Edwards on guitar, Ambrose Verdibello on fiddle, and Dick Bowden on banjo. This week, both David Gandin and Andy Bing will be presenting our penultimate class!
