Book soon for Sore Fingers 2013

John & Moira Wirtz, organisers of the Sore Fingers Summer School, send news of the teaching faculty at next year's edition of the premier European instructional camp for bluegrass/old-time skills, to be held 1-5 April 2013 at Kingham Hill School, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England:

We have a pretty high-profile lineup of tutors, from the legendary Fletcher Bright, who put the Sore Fingers Fiddle course on the map back in 2001, to the incredible singing talent of Mollie O’Brien and her partner Rich Moore. Add a few amazing characters like Noam Pikelny, Chris Eldridge, and Dirk Powell to the mix and we’ve probably got one of the best lineups of musicians to teach you next Easter.

But, don’t take our word for it, just take a look on our website and get reading the tutor biogs and prepare yourself to be impressed! Sore Fingers Week is surely the best camp this side of the Atlantic. But you knew that anyway! Here’s the full list:
