The Grass Seeds Academy Bluegrass Music Camp

High 48s Teaching MBOTMA Grass Seeds Academy
Marty and Rich working with some young pickers at last year’s Grass Seeds Academy

We’re honored to once again be teaching at the Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association’s Grass Seeds Academy, an intensive three-day music camp for kids ages 8-18 that takes place during the Bluegrass Winter Weekend festival in Plymouth, MN March 4-6.

We always enjoy working with these talented young musicians and are impressed with what they are able to accomplish in just a few days. They arrive as strangers with various acoustic instruments and over the course of the weekend they form bands, arrange songs and end up playing and singing bluegrass on stage in front of a live audience – pretty cool!

If you plan on coming to the festival, make sure to stick around for the Grass Seeds recital at 1PM on the auditorium stage to witness the future of MN bluegrass!
