Larry Unger teaches and performs on April Fools Day.

BELFAST – Belfast Flying Shoes presents a workshop, concert and jam session — “Musical Mischief with Larry Unger” — Friday, April 1, at 6 p.m. at the Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court St.

Unger has been a full-time musician for nearly 40 years, and his stellar guitar accompaniment launched the Flying Shoes contra dance in 2005. He has played music all over the world and has written more than 5,000 tunes. Unger’s compositions are widely played for dances, and are featured in four Ken Burns documentaries. He likes to play unusual instruments such as jaw harp and fretless banjo. For this special April Fools Day musicians’ workshop, Unger’s well-honed teaching skills will complement his natural affinity for musical mischief.
