You won’t want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime compilation of award-winning bluegrass musicians.

Hailing from across the country, this unique ensemble will come together under the direction of professional bluegrass recording artist and faculty member/director of the bluegrass ensemble at Colorado College, Keith Reed.

The ensemble will offer an educational period, during which they will discuss the history of bluegrass and the philosophy behind their styles of playing, drawing upon the spiritual roots of bluegrass, taking participants on a tour of both religious and musical history.

This should be a phenomenal opportunity to experience some of the finest musicians and instructors in the United States.
