Just in time for National Day of the Cowboy (July 25):
Last Tuesday, country music artists Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss (along with her band Union Station), and legend Charlie Pride performed and worked with students who came to a country music workshop held at the White House. Second in a series spearheaded by First Lady Michelle Obama, 120 middle and high school music students from Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia learned about songwriting and how to perform from the award-winning artists. The workshop followed a jazz offering by the Marsalis family last month, and a classical music workshop is next up on the agenda.
