There will be three levels for core classes: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Your national champion teachers are Celeste Johnson, Cody Stadelmaeir and yours truly, Katie Glassman.

As requested, we’ll send out learning videos for the retreat songs 6 weeks in advance for you to prepare before arriving. We’ll give you the tools to participate so that you feel prepared to jam.

Once again, we’ll have healthy homemade meals prepared by our superchef Brian Kenney. But don’t just come for the food, feast yourselves with fiddle music in the splendor of the Rocky Mountains!
