Our special Kamps are designed to gather musicians of all levels from around the globe with common goals-learning, playing, eating and sleeping music. Whether you are a beginner’s beginner or a seasoned professional, each Kamp’s classes and activities will inspire and challenge you. Our intent is to maintain a non-competitive, learning atmosphere that will encourage you to grow musically and seek out new ways of playing your instrument. Steve Kaufman has put together the strongest team of Guitar, Bass, Old Time and Bluegrass Fiddle, Dobro ã¢, Old Time and Bluegrass Banjo, Songwriting and Vocals, Hammered and Mountain Dulcimer and Mandolin instructors the world has to offer.
We feel it is the best organized, educationally beneficial, camaraderie based Kamp available. People come from all over the world to share this experience. Everyone is nervous the first time at the Kamp – for about 15 minutes. Then they see all the love and joy and excitement around them. Everyone comes for one main purpose. To eat music, sleep music, dream music and play music! We hope you too will join us to experience this joy in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
