Workshops

Workshop locations will be posted in the lobby of the main auditorium. – Please note that they may be subject to possible changes/additions.

Attendance at our workshops is included with your Saturday, Sunday or weekend pass. Whether you play an instrument or are just a big fan of the teacher(s), it’s a great opportunity to learn in an intimate setting. Workshop instructors share techniques and anecdotes, their philosophy about performing and answer questions you might have.

Sometimes people ask why all the workshops take place at the same time. We know it can be tough deciding which one to attend when you’d like to go to several. It comes down to logistics, available space, and teachers. The workshops are taught by the band performers, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to learn from an accomplished master. Please keep in mind that they also need to rehearse for their performance sets, have meals, rest and then go play on stage. The festival is jam-packed with activities and there is limited time and space to hold all of them.

Check out the Mandolin Tasting event under the Things to Do section – always a fun time!
