Augusta: Bluegrass Week
July 21, 2019 - July 26, 2019
The staff of well-known bluegrass figures will share their talents with participants in workshops, demonstrations, special presentations, concerts, and jam sessions throughout the week. Informal picking sessions at all levels go on ’til the wee hours all over campus as participants and staff get together with old friends and make new ones. Evening performances feature exciting combinations of master bluegrass artists with special guests. While workshops are geared for adults, young folks able to maintain an adult level of participation are welcome. All workshops (except Vocals) are intended for those who can already play their instrument to some extent and are ready to start learning bluegrass style, technique, and repertoire.
Bluegrass Week runs concurrently with Vocal Week; Arts, Crafts, & Folklore Workshops; Folk Arts for Kids; and Evening Mini-Courses. This is the first year of our Bluegrass Week and Vocal Week pairing, and we have some exciting plans in store. Participants can take advantage of both weeks by attending special events, afternoon electives, swapping songs in jam sessions, and sharing in the fun!
