LOCATION: Birthplace of Country Music Museum

At the Birthplace of Country Music Museum’s Pick Along Summer Camp, students will learn foundational skills from expert instructors on the same style of acoustic instruments played on the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings – banjo, guitar, or fiddle. Campers also get to explore the museum, learn about the music of Bristol and our region, receive instruction in singing and dancing, and work on projects with WBCM Radio Bristol while also making new friends! Students are given the opportunity to hone their skills as budding musicians while busking in Historic Downtown Bristol and will give a final performance for parents at the museum at the end of camp week.

Pick Along Summer Camp is designed for students aged 8-14. No previous musical experience is required, just an interest in music and a desire to learn!
