Bluegrass workshop weekend in Calgary

The Foothills Bluegrass Music Society in Calgary, Alberta is hosting their 1st Annual Chinookgrass Academy at the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel in Calgary on February 11-12, 2006. Instructors include Bill Evans (banjo), John Reischman (mandolin), Eric Thompson (guitar), Trisha Gagnon (bass), Jimmy Heffernan (dobro) and Suzy Thompson (fiddle).

Tuition for both days is only $75 (Canadian) but probably does not include hotel accommodations. Workshops will be offered over two full days, followed by a concert featuring the camp faculty.
