Sorrento, B.C., Canada — The 24th Annual NimbleFingers Bluegrass and Old Time Workshop and Festival in beautiful Sorrento will be held here with workshops running August 18-23 and August 25-30. It's an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in music and be inspired by world class musicians.

Week 1 Workshop Leaders

Week 2 Workshop Leaders

There are student concerts, band scrambles, instructor concerts, campground picking sessions, hosted jams and old time dances. We hear from many of our regulars that the summer music workshop is what they look forward to the most each year. We offer two separate weeks of workshops, and many of our attendees stay for both. It's a chance to connect with your musical community - learn something new and have some fun at the same time.
