Bluegrass Camps for Kids
We're excited to announce that Bluegrass Camps for Kids will be with us for the 2014 festival and has been expanded to four days from July 8th to July 11th from 10:00 am to 3:30pm. This will be a bluegrass and folk music program for children ages 9 - 18, organized and taught by members of the award-winning band, The Barefoot Movement. Children 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.

There is a limit of 35 students and the cost is $200 per student. Scholarship assistance is available for eligible Sheridan and Johnson County, Wyoming residents. Follow this link for more information and registration. Questions should be addressed to the Johnson County Arts & Humanities Council via e-mail.  

Festival workshops will be announced as we gather our lineup for 2014 and assemble our schedule.  Check back in the spring for the 2014 workshops and check out the 2013 workshops below for an idea of what to expect.

Workshops were held on Saturday, July 13, 2013.
Our workshops give you the opportunity to meet with the musicians, ask questions, and improve your playing ability or appreciation of the traditional and acoustic instrument arts.  All our workshops are hosted by our performers who appear on the Main Stage and are among the best in their craft.  All our workshops are free so come and enjoy!

e feature two types of workshops.  Showcase workshops will be of interest to all including those who don’t play an instrument.  The showcase workshops will all be held in the Community building from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Instrument workshops will be of more interest to those who play an instrument or who are considering taking up an instrument.  These workshops will all be held in the Needlecraft and Cook Shack buildings just south of the Community Building from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.  Bring your instruments!
