Augusta Week 3 @ Elkins
July 28, 2022
An event every day that begins at 2:00 am, repeating until July 29, 2022
The music and dance in Week 3 will be coordinated by longtime friends of Augusta Phil Wiggins, Joan Fenton and Joebass Dejarnette. Participants can plan their schedule to include any combination of blues and old-time classes so that they can explore the common influences of two genres that shaped the very definition of American music. Study one style exclusively, or examine how your instrument gets approached by a master of either of these musical forms. The evenings will be full of jams, concerts, dances and more.
Folk Arts for Kids will give participants (ages 5 to 11) a chance to explore craft, nature, music and dance in a fun and immersive environment.
Teen Augusta (this week only!) is perfect for older kids (12-17) who want a taste of everything Augusta has to offer. The daytime schedule will feature music, craft, cooking, hiking and more.
Do you want to get just a taste of Augusta after work? Sign up for an evening mini-class to get 4 nights of instruction with a world-class instructor. If you get the event pass, too, you can join us for all of the week’s dances and concerts in the evening as well. You can sleep next week…
