How I Spent my Summer Vacation

I just got back from a fantastic week at Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp.¬†SK Acoustic Kamp

This was my second year at the Kamp and it was great. Unfortunately a harmonica class is not offered…yet but you never know. Bluegrass is the focus of the week I was at the Kamp. I play several instruments including the harmonica and this year I ¬†decided to focus on playing Dobro at the Kamp. I took my mandolin along for the elective classes and also to play at the many bluegrass jams throughout the day and late into the night.

The dobro instructors this year were none other than Curtis Burch, Jimmy Heffernan and Ivan Rosenberg. All heavy hitters and masters of the Dobro.

All of the instructors at the Kamp are the best at what they do and a great many are Winfield competition winners. In fact Steve Kaufman is the only 3 time winner of the flatpicking contest. If you haven’t heard Steve play, check him out soon.

If anyone out there is interested in some Dobro info, leave a comment and let me know.
