Fiddle and Guitar Camp

Fiddle and Guitar Camp is especially for the tweens and teens to groove and jam in a rock n’ roll fiddle kinda way! This camp is best suited for fiddlers with two or more years of experience and guitarists with or without experience. Adrianna Ciccone, Luke Fraser and Sarah Frank (the Bombadils), and Colin Cotter will be instructing and will bring together the sweet sounds of these two instruments as you learn new tunes and improve your skills. From modern to traditional, Cape Breton to Quebec, and beyond, get ready to explore the world of fiddle and guitar. And finally, the week will end with what else? A good ol’ East Coast kitchen party!
