Massive bass response balanced with articulate highs makes this a benchmark acoustic guitar and a must-have for every guitarist. Perfect for the intermediate and advanced player.

Summer Camp Spotlight: Stringband w/ Ann Downey

Sringband w/ Ann Downey

Do you play fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar or bass, and want to play old-time music with others? Here’s your chance! While giving a nod to some of the classic old time American string -bands, this “string-band” class will get you playing, singing and generally having a good time making music together. Bring instruments, and a couple of tunes / songs, and we’ll see what we can do. If you play multiple instruments, you may want to take the road less traveled, to help with the variety of sound and texture. Non-string instruments are welcome too, though we reserve the right to ration and re-direct multiple percussion instruments (washboard, bodhran, spoons, etc.).
