Jamming

http://younglionsspeedway.co.uk/rider-profile-submission/ On Saturday afternoon following the end of classes we’ll offer internet-style bluegrass and old-time music jams led by our faculty. Old-time jams will (of course) be led by fiddlers, whereas bluegrass jams will be led by members of our banjo faculty. For each genre, we’ll offer two jamming options.

  • Slow to moderate jams for relatively inexperienced players (and for others who prefer relaxed tempos)
  • Up to Speed Jams: for the slightly more adventurous. Instructors will may push tempos a little and suggest somewhat more demanding tunes, depending on the skill level of attendees

http://msjazee.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/1 Note: Every registrant is encouraged to join in our staff-led jams and all instruments are welcome. They’re not just for banjo players!!

Advice: Although our expert and fully well-meaning faculty members are there to facilitate your jamming experience, please understand that to some degree the quality of that experience is up to you. If tunes are too hard or tempos get too fast for the posted level of the jam,  or if you’re simply not sure what your role is, please don’t hesitate to speak up!

Faculty Concert

Our Online Faculty Concert will take place on Sunday evening, as the final event of Suwannee Banjo Camp, and you will have a chance to hear our most if not all of our staff in concert. If you are a fan of bluegrass music, old-time music, or simply old-fashioned musical virtuosity and good taste, these concerts are simply not to be missed. Many students at our live camps have told us that the concerts alone are worth the price of admission.

Here is our 2022 Faculty Concert Lineup.
