WUMB’s Blues Music Camp offers a full weekend of classes and workshops exploring a wide range of blues styles and forms, from guitar to harmonica to vocal and ensemble-playing. We’ve invited some of the best blues and roots musicians in New England to share their expertise and insights during this new camp sponsored by WUMB.
The weekend will be filled with intensive instruction, jamming, workshops, concerts, a student concert, musical collaboration, and opportunities to learn directly from instructors attuned to the needs of each student. Plus, it’ll be beautiful leaf-peeping season at the foot of New Hampshire’s White Mountains!
