Just finished two amazing weeks of teaching mandolin at Maine Fiddle Camp. What a great year for the mando at this camp, with four great teachers: Jeff Lewis, Eric McDonald, Baron Colins-Hill, and myself. We did everything from You Are My Sunshine, to swing tunes, to crooked Spanish jigs.
I’ll miss all of these great folks, but I’m looking forward to playing some dances around the state, enjoying the fall weather, and getting back to teaching in Portland. If you’re looking to take a few lessons, drop me a line. My contact info is HERE
Phew! Just got back from two fantastic weeks of teaching mandolin at Maine Fiddle Camp. If you’ve ever thought of attending a music camp, I highly recommend this one. I even recommend it if you’ve never thought of attending a music camp. Located in Montville, ME, this camp really fosters a sense of family that people look forward to year after year, and the staff are fantastic musicians and people to boot. You can take workshops for fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, cello, whistle, piano, bass and some weeks even harmonica! They have a Facebook Page with comments from campers, pictures from camp, and videos of performances that can help you get a bigger picture. They run a both weekend and a week long program in June, and then 2 separate week-long programs in August. Check it out!!
