Famed Dallas Bluesman, Hash Brown, will be doing a new 3 hour workshop on Songwriting and The Blues on Saturday March 3, 1012. This is a can't miss event for any songwriter that would like an introduction to the blues or wants to learn more about writing blues style songs. It will be an interactive workshop so bring an acoustic guitar too!
Hash Brown has been fronting the Hash Brown Band and the Browntones, playing guitar and harmonica and wri
ting songs for over 35 years. He has also been featured on guitar and harmonica both on stage and in the studio with many other local and national blues artists such as ZuZu Bollin, Robert Ealey, Big Al Dupree, Willie WIllis, Barbara Lynn and Henry Qualls.

He has hosted Blues Jams all over the metroplex for over 27 years and is known for giving generously of his time and helping hundreds of young musicians who are just starting out at his jams. Hash Brown is a very accomplished songwriter with numerous original tunes on his CDs and an uncanny ability to come up with blues songs "on the fly" as he is performing. He is also a master of all styles of blues guitar, from Mississippi country blues to all the Kings, (Freddie, Albert, B.B.), His workshop will be a real treat as he injects his combination of humor and musical knowledge into the program.
