TAKE YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

Tired of the same ol’ strumming and pounding? Take your music to the next level
and learn some of the time-honored riffs, nuances, clichés, tricks and styles of
masters such as Maybelle Carter, Mícheál ÓDomhnaill, Jimmie Rodgers,
Bill Monroe, Violet Tulloch, Josephine Keegan, Hazel Dickens, Dónal Lunny,
Riley Puckett and others.

Workshops led by our staff of celebrated performers and instructors will
focus on how to thoughtfully play backup in a variety of traditional folk music
styles. You’ll work and play together in small groups... enjoy instructor and
camper concerts... share good food and drink... and come away with a new understanding
of tasteful, rock-solid backup.
