Nashville Acoustic Camps - Covid 19 Update
We have postponed all of our upcoming camps until 2021.
This includes the sold out 2020 camps and those for which registration was already open - April Flatpick Camp,  Clawhammer Camp, FiddleStar Adult Camp, Dobro Camp, Beginner Jam Camp, and Fall Flatpick Camp.

If you are registered and paid for these camps, you will still be registered and paid when we can all gather together safely.
We look forward to getting everyone here for some good music, good learning, and good friends.

In the woods above Nashville, TN, there is a camp for flatpickers of all levels and most ages. It is held in a beautiful home surrounded by trees and creeks and bonfire pits perfect for late night jamming. Many of the greatest flatpickers alive will be teaching there but only 15 students will be allowed to sign up - guaranteeing the most incredible learning experience offered in modern music camping.

You will stay on-site or travel from your home each day and learn from the masters. In the afternoons there will be jams where you may very well find yourself picking Red Haired Boy or Big Sciota across from Kenny Smith or possibly Amanda Smith sings harmony with you while you sing and pick with Russ Barenberg.

On Sunday of camp you can record a tune with one of these flatpicking heroes with a real-deal professional engineer. We also have a very close relationship with the incredible Carter Vintage Guitars store in downtown Nashville. We always suggest you head there either before or just after camp to see what's new over there. Feel free to click on the link above to browse their website before you head this way. Gearld Strickland is our camp luthier and will be available throughout camp to help you sort out any issues you might have with your guitar.
