A group of 34 students and 4 tutors gathered at Halsway Manor in Somerset for the annual summer school. It was a fantastic weekend packed with music from start to finish and this year there were terrific sessions in the bar thanks to the bluegrass tutors and the double bass! There were 3 courses: Classic Finger-style 5-string Banjo with Chris Sands, Baroque Mandolin with Classical Guitar Accompaniment with Frances Taylor and Let's build a Bluegrass Band with Mike Pryor & Richard Holland.
