Harmonica Workshops

These popular workshops are conducted by David Seay who has played harmonica for over 40 years. Within the first few minutes participants (age 7 and up) will be playing actual folk songs on their very own harmonicas ($2.50 each).

David often includes a mini-workshop version as part of one of his Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau Programs. He also likes to feature harmonica workshops with one or more focus groups during a Nebraska Arts Council’s Artist in the Schools/Communities Residency.

These workshops may be individually contracted and tailored to fit your particular group and event.

Check out David’s Harmonica Workshop web page for more nitty-gritty details.


Beginning Contra and Round Dance

If you can walk then you can learn these fun, easy old-time dances. Debby and David teach the steps one at a time and then call the dances while playing the fiddle and guitar. These sessions generally start with a simple circle dance and conclude with a rousing Virginia Reel.


Songwriting Workshops

In collaboration with David and/or Debby, students create lyrics, develop a melody, enhance the arrangement, rehearse, and record their own original compositions. This unique experience can culminate with a performance for the whole school with Greenblatt & Seay playing some of their original songs, and the students debuting their new creations for their school mates. These workshops are often conducted as part of a Nebraska Arts Council's Artist in the Schools/Communities Residency program.


Hands-on Workshops

Individual students get the chance to play a variety of string and percussion instruments.
