Camp Info

This year we are celebrating our 10th year!  As a special treat we are bringing in JJ Guy from Saskatoon as our fourth fiddle instructor.  We are slightly modifyying our schedule so all students will get to spend time with each of the instructors.

Shivering Strings Music Camp begins with a Welcome! reception on Friday evening.  Instructors are introduced and we have an informal jam session.  There will be cake and a cash bar. All campers, as well as family and friends, are welcome for this event.

Saturday and Sunday mornings begin with musical warmups, then classes.  Each group of fiddlers will have four fiddle classes each day.  Guitar/mandolin/etc. will spend these class times with Skip. There will also be a combined class in the afternoon to go over parts for the orchestra piece and a group rehearsal of tunes taught during the day.

Saturday evening there will be an instructors' concert and dance.  This event is open to camp participants (no charge), family and friends ($20 adults and $5 children).

Sunday afternoon ends with a final session where all of the music for camp is played.  All participants will play the simpler tunes and all players can play parts of the more complex tunes. This event is open to family and friends at no charge.
