Event description

Description

Known primarily as the emotive string instrument heard in classic country music, the pedal steel guitar has always been considered a mystery by many musicians and music lovers – a complex machine consisting of levers, pedals, and rods that often leaves people scratching their heads wondering, “How does this thing work?” However, the sounds that emit from the instrument when in the hands of a knowledgeable player can be powerful and haunting all at once. Attend this seminar and learn up close and firsthand how this instrument works and how it is used as an accompanying instrument in multiple genres of music.

Chris LeDrew started playing pedal steel guitar in 1999 and since that time has played on over 50 east coast albums. As a member of the 8-Track Favourites and other groups, Chris has performed at least 500 shows as a pedal steel guitarist. Chris has played at steel guitar shows in Calgary, Dallas, and St. Louis, and has attended workshops and networked with some of the best pedal steel guitarists in the world. His passion for this instrument is on par and sometimes exceeds his love of songwriting, which was his main focus for the first half of his music career.
