Bloomington Early Music Festival Presents: What can You Do with Greensleeves: A Ground Bass Jam Session with Adam Gilbert

Anyone can improvise over the four-chord progressions of the Romanesca pattern at the heart of the famous Greensleeves melody. In less than one hour, Adam Gilbert will have you playing or singing variations over Greensleeves in Renaissance and Baroque styles, from the simplest four note melodies to florid scales, arpeggios, and fancy passages. It’s fun, exciting, and no one has yet been injured in the process. Bring your instrument or voice to join in the slightly scary but oh so exciting fun!
