Performances and master classes will be the highlights of the fifth annual Sumner County Bluegrass Jamboree. The free event is coming to Volunteer State Community College on Saturday, April 9 and everyone is invited to attend. The Jamboree is hosted by Vol State as part of the Bluegrass Music degree emphasis at the college.
The master classes will include a guitar and songwriting session by Rebecca Frazier; mandolin instruction by Roland White; Rebecca Baumbach with fiddle insights; and Mark Barnett teaching a class about banjo techniques. These music veterans will also be performing at the Jamboree. Competitions will not be held this year, to focus on the classes and performances.
