Going to NashCamp!

I got  the check in the mail, so it’s official – I’m going to NashCamp’s Fall Banjo Retreat this year!

This is a big banjo event held each year about 20 miles outside of Nashville at a small park, where nothing much besides banjo picking goes on with some of the best. Sonny Osborne, Bill Evans, Bill Emerson, Alan Munde and several more well-known banjoists are the teachers. I’ve heard the food is top notch as well. Sleep, apparently, can wait while you’re there.

I might mention – in all my 32 years of banjo playing and teaching, I’ve never had a lesson from anyone, so this should be uh… interesting!

I do plan to blog on the experience; possibly while I’m there. I don’t know if that’s technically feasible there or not, though. if not I’ll post details afterwards.

I’m excited!

About Pgibson

I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown. I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles. I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
