Joining us to teach the fiddle Master Class will be Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, the fiddler in Mile Twelve. And for the Fast Track Classes, I will now be teaching a class on bluegrass jamming, while Mary Maguire and Nancy Harrowitz have completely reenvisioned their joint class on singing."

As a reminder, the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival is coming up very soon: February 17th - 19th in Framingham, MA. Both the Master Classes Fast Track Classes meet during the day on Friday, February 17th immediately before the festival starts, from 11 am to 4 pm, with a one-hour lunch break at 1 pm.
