Pete Wernick Jam Camp comes to March Costanoa Fest MARCH 5-7
Hello California and Nevada friends!
In March Joan and I will be out your way, at a new bluegrass event you might find to your liking --
Bluegrass at a beautiful coastal resort sounds good to me... a small weekend festival with a great setting for bluegrass fun (March 7-8),
plus: a three-day jam camp for new or experienced jammers, March 5-7 (Wed-Fri.),
with an optional half-day "Intro to Jamming" half-day the previous evening.
The Costanoa Resort
Whether you are already a jammer or are wanting to become one, our camp will give you a chance to get out your instrument and make some bluegrass music!
Joan and I have now hosted over 100 camps, and we know how to help players of all instruments get traction and have fun in a jam.
We work on ear skills, how lead and follow songs, harmony singing, faking solos, in short, all the skills needed to be confident in jams.
You can qualify to be in the camp just by knowing G, C, D, and A chords -- or come ready to work on soloing, singing, and expanding your existing skills.
We have now launched over 2000 jammers, going back to our earliest camps at the Brookdale Lodge over 10 years ago.
That's where we first got to work with the Brookdale Bluegrass folks, Eric and Barbra Burman.
The events they run are filled with the homespun goodness that good bluegrass is all about. We always enjoyed our times in Brookdale,
and now that Eric and Barb have relaunched the event at the cozy/comfy Costanoa Lodge,
we're honored and pleased to bring our camp there, and perform at the festival.
Please check the links in this page to see what the camp, the festival, and the setting are like.
This could be a great time to start gearing up for 2014 festival season,
see friends old and new, and add some bluegrass fun into your life this new year!
Here's what folks have had to say about our jam camps:
"The learning curve is amazing in this jam class setting."
"I have been waiting to start playing real bluegrass with people for quite a while, and now I can."
"It was a beautiful thing to see Pete's clear pleasure at a group of learners singing harmony for the first time,
or a musician taking their first out-of-the-closet solo."
"An incredible experience... a depth of knowledge on the subject beyond just technique, including the history, etiquette, and flavor of the genre."
