I was fortunate enough to attend Megan Lynch’s and Casey Henry’s Bluegrass Jam Camp in Goodlettsville TN in late Sept 09. This was my 3rd time to attend a camp hosted by Megan Lynch and I must say that her camps keep getting better and better. Once again, the level of talent that she was able to find to teach the classes was second to none. Many of the instrument instructors were or have been nominees for IBMA instrumentalists of the year. Others were active touring Bluegrass professional musicians who converged at Megan’s camp to openly share their vast knowledge. Her instructors were able to teach at all levels. No matter your playing level/ability, you were able to learn and improve. Each day consisted of several classes on all different aspects of Bluegrass Muisc. In only 4 days, I was able to get EXPERT instruction on Jam etiquette, harmony singing, fiddle playing, mandolin playing, upright bass playing, and guitar playing. After class we even made a few field trips to the Station Inn, and the Grand Ole Opry. The food was excellent, and the joking between campers was a lot of fun. Nowhere else in the world can you go and get this much musical education from the top performers in the Bluegrass industry.
