Boomer, NC (Merlefest): Jam Camp

September 13, 2021 September 16, 2021

Several days of bluegrass fun, just prior to Merlefest!

We’re headed to the Camp Harrison YMCA in the beautiful mountains of Boomer, NC, followed by good music and good times at Merlefest!

We make it easy to belong, and the instruction is geared for success. Kickoffs, Fills, Harmony, Song leading, Instrument breakouts, Topical breakouts, Faking solos, Real melody solos, Jamming traditions and protocols and much much more. We create a safe place to succeed and a “Safe Fail” zone as well. We all get to take risks and learn in a supportive and positive place where the teachers are learners too.

Tuition: $425. Lunches included. $150 deposit holds your spot; 50% refundable for cancellations more than one month in advance.

This jam camp is taught using The Wernick Method, developed by Pete Wernick and now used by Gilbert and other teachers across the country and internationally.
