Pawtucket, RI


Paul Dube and Erin Dube teach as a team. Paul plays bluegrass, folk, blues, Irish, Cajun and old-time music on guitar, accordion, mandolin and harmonica. He has played in numerous performing bands and has led slow jam workshops at the Joe Val and Podunk festivals, and since 2003 the jamming program at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.

Erin grew up going to bluegrass jams with her father and over the years learned to play guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and upright bass. Now an English Professor, she combines her love for teaching with her love for music in the Wernick Method.
