NimbleFingers bluegrass and oldtime music workshop
June 02, 2015 - 12:21 PM
SORRENTO - Spend an inspiring, challenging, and thrilling week with others who share your passion for bluegrass and oldtime music. Now in our 26th year, NimbleFingers provides a fun, friendly and noncompetitive environment for everyone from beginners to advanced players, with ample opportunity for group learning, electives, organized jam sessions, and tons of other creative activities. It’s held at the beautiful Sorrento Centre in Sorrento.
There are student concerts, band scrambles, instructor concerts, campground picking sessions, hosted jams and oldtime dances. We hear from many of our regulars that the summer music workshop is what they look forward to the most each year. We offer two separate weeks of workshops, and many of our attendees stay for both. It's a chance to connect with your musical community, learn something new and have a great time.
Once again NimbleFingers is presenting a worldclass selection of instructors and performers. Names like Old Man Luedecke, John Reischman, Chris Coole, Anne Louise Genest, Cahalen Morrison and Eli West, as well as the members of the bands Jeff Scroggins and Colorado, The Canotes, New Reeltime Travellers, The Lonesome Ace Stringband, and many more.
Workshops in both bluegrass and oldtime styles of banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, bass, lead
and harmony singing, and ballad singing. This year we’ll even be offering a Flatfoot dancing
