Three Youth Scholarships Awarded for Acoustic Music Camp

AMC-scholars-2014August 14, 2014
Part of the mission of the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation is to educate and encourage young people in bluegrass music.  In addition to operating the Play It Forward!™ Instrument Lending Program, the Foundation teamed up with Acoustic Music Camp to offer scholarships so that some deserving young people could attend Acoustic Music Camp (August 7-9, 2014).  The camp is held annually at South Oaks Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas.  Acoustic Music Camp is a three-day instructional program for musicians with intensive expert instruction in how to play mandolin, bluegrass and clawhammer banjo, flatpick guitar, upright bass, fiddle, songwriting/vocals, dobro, and fingerstyle guitar.

Fiddler Maddie Smith of Lewisville, fiddler Chad Bekarian of Dallas, and banjo player Williams Roberts of Watauga, Texas were awarded scholarships that helped them to attend Acoustic Music Camp 2014.  All three young students were learning, picking, and grinning at the camp all three days!  The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation appreciates the support of those who attend our events and make the donations that enable the Foundation to provide this assistance to fine young people like Maddie, Chad, and William.

The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers,
promoting bluegrass music in Texas. While it's free to get in the door to many of our events,
keeping the doors open isn't free. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
