More on the Wernick Method Jam Camp at Rosscarbery, Nov. 2015

Two weeks ago (on 13 Feb.) the BIB thanked Wendy Connolly and 'Bluegrass in Ireland' for news of a Wernick Method Jam Camp to be held in West Cork in early November this year. Thanks again to Wendy for passing on this message from Larry Kernagis (photo), who will be leading the Camp.

Larry sends this link to a flyer giving full details of the Camp. While the Wernick Method makes it as easy as possible for pickers on any and all of the bluegrass instruments to jam together, the Jam Camp is not intended for absolute beginners, but the only requirements are as follows:

You must be able to tune your instrument (electronic tuning devices welcome) and change smoothly between G, C, D, and A. (Fiddles and basses need to know which notes work with which chords.) Fast playing is not expected, nor is the ability to solo required.
