WE ARE SO SORRY THAT DUE TO COVID-19 THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL SUMMER 2021. THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST AND PLEASE CONTACT US TO GET ON OUR EMAIL LIST. WE WILL SEND UPDATES AS SOON AS WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION ON THIS AND OTHER HANDS-ON VERMONT PROGRAMS.


Join us in Brandon, Vermont
. (DATES TBD) We’ll take you on a musical journey to understand the roots of where all popular musical styles started – the blues.

From the Delta to Chicago to the mountains of Vermont, the blues are the crossroads where all musicians meet. Rock, rhythm & blues, country, bluegrass and jazz: these styles would not exist without the blues.

Our faculty have a direct lineage to some of the greatest names in the history of blues. As working musicians they honor and respect the traditions, the sharing of knowledge and providing mentorship. A low ratio of participants to faculty allows for individualized, hands-on interaction that gives you the key tools to improve your musicianship.

Activities include solo and band instruction, time for practicing, rehearsals, master classes, coached jam sessions, round table discussions and evening public performances. All events take place at the Compass Music and Arts Center and Brandon Music. Venues

Four days and nights of music making that will change how you play and think about music forever, while enjoying great food, lodging and camaraderie. Registration

Please note: This program is designed for ages 18 and up. If you are younger and feel it would be appropriate for you, please contact us.
