Petaluma, Calif. — John Reischman, Eric Thompson, Jim Watson and Phil Jamison make up an all-star mandolin team for the Walker Creek Fall Music Camp held October 8-11 on the grounds of the Walker Creek Ranch, located in the rolling hills of West Marin County between Petaluma and Tomales Bay, about an hour drive north of the San Francisco.
In addition to classes in old-time and bluegrass mandolin, there are other classes of interest to mandolinists: beginning string band, string blues band, and for young beginners the Music & More kids class. The camp also plays host to instruction with world class musicians in guitar, banjo, fiddle, dobro, bass and vocals.
Walker Creek Music Camp is for students of all ages who love to play or sing Bluegrass, Oldtime & Country Music with occasional forays into other related styles!

Walker Creek Music Camp is in a quiet and beautiful area with an abundance of wildlife and miles of hiking trails. They serve healthy and delicious food, and offer camping as well as various choices of lodging accommodations.
