Old School Bluegrass Camp is a different kind of workshop, focusing on bluegrass instruments and bluegrass music. With limited enrolment of only 50 campers, OSBC gives each camper an unprecedented level of teaching, coaching, mentoring and one-on-one instruction. Learning how to perform with others in a band setting is a fundamental goal of Old School Bluegrass Camp, with the aim towards creating ten bluegrass groups that will play together, jam, practice, gel as a band and ultimately perform on the OSBC stage together on the last day of camp.
