The Camp ends Sunday, May 20 with an open air concert and jam session.
Instructions for instruments include guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, clawhammer banjo, and bass. Vocal instructions will include how to get the most out of your voice, conquer your inhibitions, find your range and choose the correct key.

Leadership for the Bluegrass Music Camp is an impressive array of talented, experienced, and high-caliber musicians.

Mike will be joined by Gregg Daigle, Matt Flinner, Aaron and Erin Youngberg, Cahalen Morrison, Brian Wicklund and Eli West.
