YORKTOWN, N. Y. -- Aspiring musicians have a chance to work with Blues musician and guitarist Geoff Hartwell on Saturday in Yorktown as part of The Justin Veatch Fund Music Workshop Series.

Attendees should bring their own instrument, but any accessories will be provided. The Justin Veatch Fund Music Workshop offers monthly sessions for aspiring musicians to learn from those already successful in the industry.
