The Camp is held in
Charlton, Massachusetts

Banjo Camp North is a fun-packed weekend for banjo and ukulele players and fiddlers, and for folks who want to become banjo or ukulele players or fiddlers.

Here’s what to love about Banjo Camp North:

  • The Banjo. The Ukulele. The Fiddle.
  • Classes and workshops on a wide variety of topics for all skill levels, from beginners to advanced players.
  • Most classes and workshops are hands-on, while a few are lectures or demonstrations.
  • Faculty are leading musicians on the national scene and regional favorites. They’re excellent teachers.
  • A variety of acoustic genres is covered, including traditional and progressive bluegrass, old time, and jazz.
  • Guided and informal jams are held throughout the weekend, in various genres and for all skill levels.
  • Faculty concerts on Friday and Saturday after dinner and before evening jams.
  • Lots of informal opportunities to “pick” with faculty and other students.
  • Camaraderie with other people who share your passion for the banjo, ukulele or fiddle.
  • A luthier on duty at a vendor table to help you with your instrument; and CDs and DVDs by the faculty will be available for sale.
  • One-on-one or small group tutoring available from support faculty in other instruments (mandolin, guitar, and bass) at no additional cost.
  • Comfortable housing, and good food at tables shared by campers and faculty.
