CB Music Festival: Bluegrass and Beyond Camp

July 27, 2020 @ 9:00 am - July 31, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Bluegrass and Beyond is a music camp for instrumentalists (violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, banjo, vocals, and mandolin) ages 8-99 years old** and for all levels where students have the unique opportunity to work and study with some of the best bluegrass and folk musicians in the world during the day and hear them perform in the evenings. Students will play bluegrass and fiddle tunes, learn and practice improvisation skills, write songs, explore other electives such as vocalizing while playing an instrument, and advance individual skills through instrument break-out sessions. An exciting culminating student performance will take place at the end of the week during the Crested Butte Arts Festival.

In addition to playing music, students will have the opportunity to hike with faculty, join fellow students in an evening country dance, and more! Come to Crested Butte Colorado for an amazing musical experience and enjoy living in one of the most beautiful places in all of Colorado.

As we adjust our programing for up 24th Season, we are reimagining the bluegrass and beyond camp we are pleased to be able to offer it at the rate of $399.

* Bluegrass and Beyond Camp @ CBMF is a day camp from 9am-4pm daily. Lodging is not provided for students or their families. For more information about lodging options in the town of Crested Butte and in Gunnison, please click here.
