Bouzouki Workshops with Leonidas Zafiris and Elias Poulos

The City of Tarpon Springs is pleased to present a series of workshops in Greek bouzouki for youth and adults by Leonidas Zafiris and Elias Poulos.

Originally from Greece, Leonidas Zafiris is an outstanding professional bouzouki musician and teacher. Prior to working in Toronto for many years, Zafiris played bouzouki for many of the top vocalists in Greece for over 25 years.  Born in Argos, Greece, Elias Poulos is known as a fine singer, but he is also an accomplished bouzouki musician.  His repertoire includes the latest hits from Greece as well as well-known dimotika, rembetika, nisiotika, and songs from throughout Greece.  Both Zafiris and Poulos currently perform in the band Ellada.

Workshops will take place on Sundays, June 24, July 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29 at the Safford House, 23 Parkin Ct., Tarpon Springs, FL 34689.  Classes will be divided into beginning (2-3pm) and advanced (3-4pm) sections. $5 donation per class requested.

Students should bring an instrument, and there will be a few bouzoukis available on site for beginning students. In addition, a limited number of bouzoukis are available through a Bouzouki Lending Program at the Tarpon Springs Public Library, 138 E. Lemon Street. 727-943-4922.
