Photo by Dan Guarino Accomplished guitarist Kerry Kearney shares his knowledge with eager students at a special Blues Guitar Workshop presented by the Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA). The small group workshop allows Kearney to give each student individualized new techniques whatever their playing level. “I picked up a few things from this,” said one guitar player, “played a gig on Saturday and was blown away by the new things I could use.”

The second class drew a full classroom of ten guitarists.

The next class will be on Wednesday, December 11th, 7:30 p.m., at RAA’s T-7 Gallery building at Fort Tilden. Anyone interested in attending should contact RAA 718-474-0861. Based on the popularity of the course, Kearney and RAA are looking to continuing its run and will announce new dates shortly. An internationally touring artist, Breezy Point resident Kearny was voted ‘Best Guitarist’ by LI Voice and ‘Bluesman of the Year’ by the Long Island Blues Society. Kearney’s course is the first of several RAA is set to offer as part of its new Adult Ed program.1) Guitarists pick up tips from Kerry Kearney’s Blues Guitar Workshop, presented by the Rockaway Artists Alliance.
