7:30 PM EST. This traditional American fiddle tune is also known as "The Battle of New Orleans." January 8 was the date of that battle in 1815. Jimmy Driftwood of Mountain View, Arkansas wrote the lyrics and Johnny Horton had a million selling record with the song in 1959.

This arrangement is suitable for the intermediate level player who is looking for a challenge to improve his/her speed of playing and flatpicking skills, as well as accuracy of hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides. Tablature and an audio practice track will be provided to all registered participants and are included in the cost of the workshop.
