2018 VYF Summer Fiddle Camp

August 27th to 31, 2018


We are very excited to present the 2018 Smithers Summer Fiddle Camp, August 27-31, 2018 at Rock Nest Ranch, 7907 Barrett Hat Rd, Houston, BC

Come join us for four days and four nights of friends, fiddle music, folk dancing, and fun. We are hosting inspiring instructors from all over Canada who will provide mentorship and workshops.

The camp is open to aspiring players of fiddle, mandolin, bass, guitar, and keyboard, from ages 5-105, with instruction in your instrument(s) and workshops that include drumming, yoga, art, and almost anything you can do with a guitar, keyboard or fiddle. Instruction is open to everyone who has played their instrument for at least one year.

The camp will begin on Monday night with registration and an instructor concert, and will end with the Student Concert on Friday afternoon, where together we will showcase what we have been working so hard on all week. Like last time, we will spend time every day working on mass fiddle orchestra pieces arranged for us by our visiting mentors.

Instructors this year include: Leslie-Jean MacMillan, Clinton Pelletier, Annie Avery, Jaron Freeman Fox, Elise Bouer, James Stephens, Gordon Stobbe, Lea Kirstein, JJ Guy, Roxi Dykstra, Keitha Clark, Colin Butchart, Ingrid Johnston, Jake Jenne, and Julie Schryer.
