Pemi Valley - Wernick Method Camp
The Pemi Valley Bluegrass Festival is happy to once again offer the fun and invaluable Wernick Method Jam Camp. This is a hands-on way to learn the language of bluegrass jamming, for all instruments. Gentle tempos, only 4 chords required, and all ages welcome. Closet pickers especially welcome! Experienced jammers will be given extra challenges.
The Jam Camp consists of two sessions, Tuesday, August 1, 2017 from 12-5 PM and Wednesday, August 2, 2017 from 12-4 PM. The group will open the festival on Wednesday playing a 15 minute set on the Main Stage at 5PM!! The cost for the jam camp is $160, with a $10 discount if you sign up by July 15, 2017!
This year the class will be led by Dave Kiphuth. Dave is a highly experienced bluegrass musician and teacher. As one student said, "He is patient and very sharing with his amazing musical knowledge. He makes everyone of all abilities feel welcome and encourages them to participate at whatever level they play. It is rare to find someone who is both a fine teacher and a fine musician all in one person. Email Dave here or message him through Facebook.
