Bluegrass and Beyond Camp

July 26 - July 30

Bluegrass and Beyond

Join Stephanie Mientka, Dylan Fixmer, and Andrew Krimm for the 2021 Bluegrass and Beyond Camp!

The Bluegrass and Beyond Camp at CBMF is a fun, 5-day music camp* in Crested Butte, Colorado. Bluegrass and Beyond is a music camp for instrumentalists (violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, vocals, and mandolin) aged 8-99 years old** and for all levels where students have the unique opportunity to work and study with some of the best bluegrass and folk musicians in the world during the day and hear them perform in the evenings. Students will play bluegrass and fiddle tunes, learn and practice improvisation skills, write songs, explore other electives such as vocalizing while playing an instrument, and advance individual skills through instrument break-out sessions. An exciting culminating student performance will take place at the end of the week during the Crested Butte Arts Festival.
