Join us in the winter of 2015 for an intimate weekend of old-time music learning. Up in the hills above Nashville, TN, five fiddlers and five banjo players will be paired up to spend the weekend learning how to play timeless music and truly musically connect with other players. There will also be an opportunity for the fiddlers to learn some banjo and for the banjo players to learn a little fiddle. Megan Lynch Chowning and Adam Hurt are widely known as two of the best teachers of their instruments and they're planning a curriculum that will really bring out the best of the instruments as a pair. With help from Tyler Andal and Adam Chowning, you'll never be left behind and will leave camp feeling like you have a whole new understanding of old-time music and the beauty of playing fiddle banjo tunes together with someone you've never met, but somehow now feel like you've known your whole life. It will give you a new confidence to get out and jam and take your music to another, more enjoyable level. You don't have to have ever played with other people before, but it's best if you know a few tunes on your main instrument and can play them in time.
