Join two premiere acoustic musicians, Chris Brashear (fiddle, guitar)and Matt Flinner (mandolin, banjo), for an exciting day of interactive workshops. The focus of the workshop sessions will be on fundamentals of playing in a group setting, building repertoire and the role of your instrument in an ensemble.Attendees will have the opportunity to play along with both of the instructors during the sessions. We also anticipate some very special guest artists showing up as well.Sign up today to hold your spot! All bluegrass instruments are welcome.
