The 4th Annual Grand Targhee Bluegrass Camp will be held August 18-21, preceding the Targhee Bluegrass Festival.Â Located at the Grand Targhee Resort in Alta, WY, the setting is ideal for getting away from the daily grind and spending some quality time in the mountains picking and singing.
Headlining the all-star line up of instructors is Darrell Scott, who will be returning by popular demand to teach songwriting.Â The staff also includes Casey Driesen (fiddle), Tony Trischka & Danny Barnes (banjo), Tyler Grant (guitar), Brian Wicklund (mandolin) and Eric Thorin (bass). Using bluegrass music as the common language, the camp focus is on individual instrumental skills and on group playing and jamming. Each day is comprised of morning and afternoon classes, elective workshops, jam sessions (both structured and unstructured) and evening performances.Â The camp is has built a reputation for its relaxed and intimate vibe; a place where pickers make new friends, find inspiration, and get to play with and know the instructors.
Says camp director Ben Winship, â€œI think this camp is one of the best kept secrets in acoustic music -Â our classes are small, the staff is amazing, we have a killer setting and great food. What more do you need?â€
