Unique Guitar Workshops & Concert Coming To Williston
It amazes me every time I am around someone that plays any instrument. I am in awe of just how easy they make it look. Their hands just move effortlessly along the piano keys or strum the guitar strings with ease. As I write this, awe is not the right word. Jealous is probably closer. Playing any instrument takes work and dedication. My parents and grandparents would tell you I was dedicated...to talking!
A unique opportunity comes to Williston in early March. Join award-winning Western Music Artist Almeda Bradshaw for a guitar workshop for adults and students on March 3 from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm and March 4 from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

Almeda is an engaging entertainer sharing the west from a western heart. Her clear alto voice lends nuance to the stories in her songs. Whether spoken or sustained, with gusto or gentle grit, Almeda's singing and narration capture folks of all ages as does her flat-pick guitar playing. With a compelling stage presence of wit and charm, history and trivia, humor, and a humble spirit, Almeda knows she's but a vessel for the songs she delivers and her repeated invitations to perform are testimony to the quality she brings to her shows.
Enjoy a night of music by award-winning Western Music artist Almeda Bradshaw of Huntley, Montana. Treats and refreshments will be served during intermission.
