We’re happy to have you join us at the first Peghead Nation Mandolin Camp, Thursday, October 19 – Sunday, October 22.

You’ll learn with three of the leaders in today’s vibrant mandolin community–Sharon Gilchrist, John Reischman, and Joe K. Walsh. Over the course of this special weekend, your instructors will lead you through immersive sessions focusing on improving your mandolin technique, developing your repertoire, and honing your overall musicianship. You’ll rotate through sessions with John, Sharon, and Joe, so you’ll have focused time with each of our experienced instructors. In addition, Peghead Nation co-founder and guitar instructor Scott Nygaard will be on hand to teach a couple group guitar sessions for those interested in learning guitar.

Looking forward to our weekend of mandolin fun! Here is our schedule, which is, of course, subject to change.
