“I know as a touring musician, it is rare to find the opportunity to study with mentors and colleagues. Music Camp offers an unprecedented opportunity to all the musicians who attend Folk Alliance,” says Doug Cox, Camp Director. “The connection with Folk Alliance International’s conference provides access to an impressive lineup of instructors. It’s unlike anything I have seen, even at other music camps. I am hoping both the public and my fellow musicians will join us.”
Camp instructor and Grand Master Fiddle Champion, April Verch said, "I’m really excited to be on the staff in 2017! This is such a great opportunity for musicians, songwriters, and performers to expand their skill set, share their passion, and find fresh inspiration. There’s truly no better way to do all of that than at a camp like this, which is filled to the brim with talent and love for what we all do!"
