DISCOUNTS! The camp is short on guitars and basses especially. The next 3 bass players will be given a discount of 80 Euros off the regular tuition cost. The next 3 guitars to register and the next 3 fiddle players will receive 30 Euros off regular cost.
The Hotel Svornost web site says "no rooms available", but space is being held for people attending the camp (password: "banjo"), with spaces still available as of March 5. Contact the hotel by email or phone, and say you're coming to the camp. That will get a bed and breakfast at the camp rate of 24 Euro/night. The rate assumes sharing of rooms. If any problem with the hotel, write Pete.
(Pete and Joan will teach in English only.)
Pete's students say:
"I have been waiting to start playing real bluegrass with people for quite a while, and now I can!"
"It was the catalyst for motivation and improvement in everyone's playing. I'd recommend it for anyone."
"An amazing weekend that opened me up to a whole new experience and will help raise my playing to a whole new level."
"The influence you have over those that attend your camps is considerable and in my case life-changing."
