Sore Fingers October Weekend 2022

21st - 23rd Oct 2022

To round off the Bluegrass Summer season, another October Sore Fingers Weekend is on its way.

Please note, arrivals are on Friday 21st and departures are on Sunday 23rd

As usual, we have an accomplished team of tutors to provide the best instruction on your chosen instrument and all are from the UK or Europe. The talent at our disposal this side of the Atlantic is fabulous and these folk know just about all there is to know about playing this type of music including Bluegrass, Old Time or other styles taught over the weekend. You will leave Kingham Hill School enriched with music and great memories!

We are running our usual classes for Banjo, Bass, Dobro, Fiddle, Guitar, Mandolin, Old Time Fiddle, Old Time Banjo, and Singing.

We are also introducing some extra courses with Ukulele, and Brazilian Choro Mandolin confirmed so far.

We are considering adding a Dance Class, a variation on the Improvisation Class, and introducing more courses aimed at learning to use Music Theory to develop playing skills and creativity.
