The Peghead Nation Mandolin Camp instructor staff plays the Ralph Stanley classic at our Camp concert.

We’ve just completed our first Peghead Nation Mandolin Camp, which was held at Kowana Valley Folk School and Lodge near Yosemite, California. Over the course of four days, students were treated to rotating classes with Sharon Gilchrist, John Reischman, and Joe K. Walsh teaching mandolin, and Scott Nygaard teaching guitar.
To get things rolling, John, Scott, Joe, and Sharon played a few tunes together, including this spirited version of Ralph Stanley’s “Clinch Mountain Backstep.”
Sign up now for John's Melodic Mandolin Tunes course on Peghead Nation.
Comments and Discussion
We don't know for sure if and when there will be another Peghead Mando Camp, but we'll post information about it as soon as we do. At the recent camp, the students (about 25 of them) were generally at an intermediate level, I'd say, with some more beginning students and some more advanced.
