14th Annual Workshop Experience 2023

(CLARKSDALE, MS) – The Pinetop Perkins Foundation 14th Annual Workshop Experience 2023 registration is now open. Workshops are open to the young and young at heart — adults welcome!

Scholarships are available for ages 12 to 21 years. Masterclasses in Piano, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Harmonica, Bass and Drums will be held June 13-16, 2023 at Hopson Plantation and Shack Up Inn in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

For piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, drums and harmonica, professional Blues musicians will present the music and techniques for playing it. Everyone needs to already have a basic knowledge of their instrument. Sorry, no beginning students allowed. Any musician who has been playing seriously for a year or so should be able to make a lot of progress in his or her Blues playing. The program requires at least two years-experience for piano workshop participants and advanced level experience for acoustic guitar.

This year they are introducing a new workshop – Acoustic Guitar with Doug MacLeod. This workshop is for advanced players who want to dig into the acoustic roots of the blues and beyond. (This is not a roll-over if the Electric Guitar slots fill up…just to clarify).
