Prior to the evening of the Daniel Smith Blues Duo in Launceston Town Hall, Daniel “a serious, challenger to Jools Holland as the UK’s no.1 boogie pianist” (Blues in Britain) delivers Blues’N’Boogie Piano Masterclass & Workshop Sessions, sharing top tips, practical theory, historical context and illuminating anecdotes, based on 30 years as a pro.

The 1-hour sessions are free to attend and open to all ages.

Come along and experience:

  • Hands-on opportunities to try out some great left-hand boogie patterns
  • Great right-hand riffs and impro advice
  • Semi-presentational, yet interactive, ‘must-know’ facts & info
  • Daniel’s Smith’s skilled personable inclusion of participants’ aims
  • Q&A opportunities
  • Illuminating close-up demonstrations
  • All underpinned by his inspiring insights into rock n rolls forerunner!

A teacher of all ages for over 35 years in his parallel career, Daniel combines authoritative pedagogy with authentic roots-piano-skills and an infectious passion for these wonderful epoch-defining American genres… a family passion that started with his maternal grandfather as a piano-playing band-leader in 1920s Indonesia.
