Steve Kaufman's Acoustic Kamp

The Big 28th Annual "Best Acoustic Kamp" In The World

June 9-15, 2024 for Old Time and Traditional Week

Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamps offers acoustic music students of all levels an opportunity for real immersion and growth in an extremely friendly, supportive and uplifting environment where people can play music, sing, jam and share valuable musical knowledge.

Choose one instrument of study from a variety of specialized weekly classes. Bring other instruments if you have them for the jams.

Enjoy four daily instructor hosted jams, evening Open Mic, and Kamp Koncerts.
Then after the evening activities, the student jams begin.

David Firestine Runs several jams through the day. You can download the song choices he will draw from HERE

Irish Jam Session
During Traditional Week, Gretchen Priest-May will also be leading an Irish Session Jam for any and all.
Find her tunes HERE.

You’ll come away with new repertoire and invaluable techniques, a reinvigorated sense of direction and purpose, and a greater confidence and joy in making music on your instrument!

Join us for Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp: Old Time and Traditional Week, Bluegrass Week or both weeks!

See you in Maryville, TN in June!
