Fall Camp for
October 5-7, 2018
Have you been wanting to come to Nashville Flatpick Camp but haven't been able to get in? Been waiting patiently for your name to rise to the top of the waiting list? Wait no longer! We are adding a new Nashville Flatpick Camp for people who have never before been to camp. The camp will be exactly the same as all the ones you've heard so much about and we want to you to join us. If you are a new camper and are only able to attend our later October camp, you are still more than welcome to register for that camp if there are still spots available when registration opens to the general public (we let previous campers register early). If there aren't any spots open by then, you're still welcome to get on the waiting list.
*New Fall 2018 instructors include Wyatt Rice, Kenny and Amanda Smith, Adam Schlenker, and David Grier.
*Dates for New Fall Flatpick Camp are Friday through Sunday, October 5-7, 2018.
*Registration for New Fall Flatpick Camp opens June 1, 2018 at 9am Central. Updates on the number of spots still available will be posted on both the home and registration pages.
*The price for on-site lodging, tuition, and delicious homemade food is a mere $800. The price for traveling to and fro each day (we call this being a "day camper" which includes tuition, lunch, snacks, and all evening activities) is $650.
*Gearld Strickland is our camp luthier and if you have any needs or concerns, he'll be available to you when you're here at camp. He also builds beautiful guitars and is the acoustic guitar repair specialist at Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville.
*Nashville Flatpick Camp is proud to be associated with D'Addario Strings. We all love our D'Addarios!
*Have you checked out Thompson Guitars? Adam plays one and we just adore the sound and the story.
*Register early - with only 15 spots time is of the essence...
In the woods above Nashville, TN, there is a camp for flatpickers of all levels and most ages. It is held in a beautiful home surrounded by trees and creeks and bonfire pits perfect for late night jamming. Many of the greatest flatpickers alive will be teaching there but only 15 students will be allowed to sign up - guaranteeing the most incredible learning experience offered in modern music camping.
You will stay on-site or travel from your home each day and learn from the masters. In the afternoons there will be jams where you may very well find yourself picking Red Haired Boy or Big Sciota across from Kenny Smith or possibly Amanda Smith sings harmony with you while you sing and pick with Adam Schlenker.
On Sunday of camp you will record a tune with one of these flatpicking heroes with a real-deal professional engineer. It's mind-boggling, really. And a new treat! We'll be hosting a private shopping experience at the new and incredible Carter Vintage Instruments store in downtown Nashville. Listen to some of the instructors demo the finest guitars in all the land after the store has closed and the public has all gone home.
