Upcoming Events!


Blues Jam at the Conservatory every fourth Monday
The first session will be on Monday, October 22nd from 7 – 9 PM. 

On the fourth Monday of each month the Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts will host an acoustic blues guitar jam. Bill Gregg, long time guitar teacher at TCFA, has presented several blues workshops at the conservatory in recent years. He is inviting guitarists of all levels who are interested in traditional blues to get together and play with others who enjoy this music. The format will be a round robin jam where each player can take a turn leading a song while others join in. For those who don’t feel comfortable in leading, it is perfectly OK to pass and just play along. Other acoustic instruments are welcome to join in too (mandolin, acoustic bass, fiddle, jug etc.) For more information contact Bill Gregg at info@harmonic-resources.com

The conservatory’s long time guitar instructor, Bill Gregg, will present THE OTHER SIDE OF BILL GREGG a concert showcasing the Appalachian or lap dulcimer, mandolin, ukulele, fiddle, banjo, piano, and autoharp along with a couple of pieces on guitar. After one of his guitar concerts last year, an audience member asked, “When are you going to do a show with all those other instruments that you play?” This is that requested concert.

In lieu of tickets with a fixed price, the conservatory and Mr. Gregg are asking those attending the concert to simply make a donation at the door to support TCFA and its mission of bringing music, art and dance to the community.
