Do you think summer camp is just for kids? Adults who want to learn the art of bluegrass can attend this year's NashCamp, June 18-23 and June 25-30, 2006 in Cumberland Furnace, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville.

Mandolin instructors for 2006 include David Harvey, Butch Baldassari and Roland White.

Classes for all levels of players are open to adults and teens (with parental permission). Some of Music City's most celebrated instrumentalists and singers lead this year's NashCamp, and students will get a chance to show off their licks in concert at the world famous bluegrass showcase club, The Station Inn.

Classes offered: guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, Dobro, bluegrass singing, and bass, all in a comfortable country setting. Campers stay in cozy log cabins, and gourmet meals are catered by Nashville's Mad Platter Restaurant.

Other instrument instructors:

Ron Stewart, Fletcher Bright - fiddle
Tim Stafford, Chris Jones - guitar
Missy Raines - bass
Bill Evans, Greg Cahill - banjo
Mike Witcher, Tim Scheerhorn - resonator guitar
