Skill Level:Honestly, if you want to have fun and learn, skill level is not important. Classes are small so a level of individual attention will be available throughout the day. It's helpful to be able to play basic rhythm and pick out basic solos, even if you have to read tab to do so.

Teachers:Banjo Ben, Katy Lou, and Kristin Scott Benson will teach banjo & guitar throughout the day.

This is a world-class fishing trip with lots of bluegrass thrown in! I'll have a great prize for biggest fish!
