I am working in Nashville for about a month this summer (end of June to end of July). I'm not sure how busy I will-or won't -be. I want to make sure I explore as much music as possible. I welcome any suggestions on minstrel or old time shows/jams/workshops/teachers/builders in the area.
I actually welcome any musical suggestions, but I thought I'd keep it relevant.
Check out the diverse musical happenings at http://fiddleandpick.ning.com/
This wonderful place is in Pegram, right outside Nashville and is operated by friends of mine, Gretchen and Tim May. Call Gretchen, tell her I sent you and what you are interested in and I'm sure she will help you find some musical activities to suit your interests.
Thank you! I've been to that site before, but had forgotten all about it. I met Tim and Gertchen (briefly) at NashCamp this summer. Oooh, I'm getting excited for this trip.
I will be teaching a banjo making workshop in TN this summer around that time. The course will be in Knoxville.
I know it is a hike from Nashville...
