The weekend-long bluegrass jam camp takes place during the annual MBOTMA Winter Bluegrass Weekend, March 3-5 at the Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West in Plymouth, MN.

Grass Seeds is workshop for musicians ages 8-18, of all skill levels, who play Acoustic Guitar, Banjo, Bass, Dobro, Fiddle/Violin or Mandolin and are interested in learning to play bluegrass in a fun and relaxed setting!

The High 48s Teaching Bluegrass at Grass Seeds Music AcademyThe kids will learn all about what it takes to play bluegrass music with others, with sessions covering their individual instruments, lead and harmony vocal singing, arranging songs and even performing in a group around a microphone.

The weekend culminates with a main-stage performance by all of the student bands and we guarantee you will be blown away with how far these kids come in just a few short days.

The program is open to all levels, no bluegrass experience is required, just an instrument and a willingness to learn!
