The Crooked Road All Star Music Camp, a one-day minicamp, will be presented at the Wayne C. Henderson School of Appalachian Arts in Marion on Tuesday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The camp is designed for students of all ages who play traditional and bluegrass music at intermediate to advanced levels.
The All Star Music Camp will feature instruction in fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, songwriting, and performance techniques by The Crooked Road All Star Bluegrass Band: Billy Baker, fiddle; Shawn Lane, mandolin; Linda Lay, bass; Sammy Shelor, banjo; and Junior Sisk, guitar; and assistant teaching artists: Blake Collins, mandolin; Meredith Goins, fiddle; Jim Lloyd, guitar; Sandy Shortridge, songwriting; and George Smith, banjo.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn from some of today’s great bluegrass and traditional music artists in an up close and welcoming environment.” said Jonathan Romeo, program manager for The Crooked Road’s Traditional Music Education Program. “The artists are looking forward to sharing their talents and to passing along the tradition.”
The cost of the camp is $45 per student, which covers admission to this one-day camp (music instruction, lunch, performance and discussion of performance techniques, songwriting workshop, and an afternoon Jam) and also includes one ticket for the Crooked Road All Star Bluegrass Band’s concert at the Lincoln Theatre in Marion that evening.
The Crooked Road All Star Music Camp is sponsored by Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, Southwest Virginia, the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development, Wayne C. Henderson School of Appalachian Arts, and Junior Appalachian Musicians, Inc.
