We will be giving instruction on how to use your voice, vocal techniques, singing harmony parts and becoming better instrumentalists on the instrument you love playing best. It will be an overall view of singing and feeling more confident when playing in a band setting.
The 2013 edition of The Red White and Bluegrass Festival will again host a Bluegrass Camp for Kids. This will be the 8th year of the kids camp and it grows in number each year. The camp will be held at the Collette Street Recreation Center in downtown Morganton on the first 3 days of the festival (July1st thru 3rd).
