Over his 20 years on the road, Roots musician Jacob Moon has played for RUSH, Marillion, and Gordon Lightfoot.  Come join us as Jason shares strategies for being an effective 'live looper', and demonstrates how students can unlock their own creativity using the BOSS RC 300 and other popular looping pedals. His performance will include originals and covers orchestrated with a combination of musical taste and technical wizardry. If you've ever wondered how looping can take your solo or band project to the next level, this clinic is for you.
