Mike Caldwell will be teaching harp. Mike explained to me, “My goal and mission is to teach players how to be an enhancement to the music --- team players who contribute to the musical conversation without DOMINATING it. This will make them welcome additions to jams and sit-in situations rather than the annoying harp player who must be endured/tolerated. “

9am       "Octaves and Double Stops"
10am   "Fix My Licks" Part 1 (two hours)
1pm       "The Art Of Tasteful Fills" Part 1

CELL: (865) 438-5291

'Apple Tree Swing’,
“Faith, Faith, Faith”; by the Mississippi Kairos Band,
