We have made the difficult decision to cancel Fiddleheads Jam Camp for 2020. Due to this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the close, vocal nature of our musical pursuit, we feel it is in our best interest to wait it out until next year. Thank you to everyone who planned to attend or just considered attending and we hope you will join us in 2021! Ellen and Melissa are planning to offer an informal jamming opportunity in the Seacoast New Hampshire area on Saturday, September 12th. Let us know if you are interested in participating. We'll miss you all! We are looking forward to playing together in 2021.
The focus of the Fiddleheads Acoustic JamCamp weekend is to teach and inspire musicians to play with each other in various styles--both singing and instrumental--and to experience playing in a band setting. Held in early September each year, camp features hours of jams, workshops and concerts throughout the day. We form bands of various styles, practice playing with others and perform in an energy-filled Saturday evening concert. Jamming of various styles happens Friday and Saturday evenings. From blues to bluegrass, jigs to jazz, cajun to country and more! We hire coaches who are not only good musicians but who are also good teachers and have played in numerous bands of various styles.
Also, we feature guided jams with focus on jamming essentials and techniques (hearing chords, backup, playing in different styles, soloing and more!
