Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamps have been in operation for 12 years now, teaching first only guitarists, but now also banjo and mandolin players in week long workshops in Maryville, TN. The “kamps” have grown from year to year, and have thrice been selected for the Best Workshops, Seminars and Camps award from the readers of Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
If you have wanted to attend but have been prevented by the costs, you should consider applying for the Dreadnaughts Unlimited Scholarship program before the deadline for 2007 falls on Thursday, May 17.
The DU official website describes their efforts this way:
Dreadnoughts Unlimited is a non-profit entity that has been established to provide scholarships to needy and eager musicians who will benefit from a week at Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp. We have awarded several scholarships over the last six years. The scholarships are funded mainly by individual donations.
A Gallagher Doc Watson guitar will be given away during this year’s Kamp, and everyone who makes a donation to the Scholarship Fund will be entered in the drawing.
You will find the application and further details on their website.
