Bighorn Bluegrass Camp
We're excited to announce that Bighorn Bluegrass Camp will be with us for the 2017 festival and will run from July 5th to July 7th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. This will be a bluegrass and folk music program for children and adults, organized and taught by the band Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. Campers can pick from a wide range of classes, including all levels of guitar, bass, banjo, fiddle, and vocals. Campers will also experience band class with their peers, daily jams, square dances, art projects, and optional private lessons. Campers will present a main stage performance on Friday afternoon.

The cost is $200 per student prior to April 30th and $225 thereafter. Scholarship assistance is available for eligible Sheridan and Johnson County, Wyoming residents. Follow this link to download the registration form.
