Jefferson teaching at Mike Block String Camp – June 25-30, 2012 – Vero Beach, Florida

I’m really looking forward to teaching at the Mike Block String Camp this summer! Enrollment is already half-full, so visit http://www.mikeblockstringcamp.com/ today if you’re interested. Here are the instructors for 2012:

Zach Brock – heralded as “the great bright hope for jazz violin”, Zach has a virtuosic and emotive voice that embraces many influences.
Hanneke Cassel – U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, and a leading creative voice in Celtic music, The Boston Globe described her as “Exuberant and rhythmic, somehow both wild and innocent.”
Joe Craven – the “Musical Madman” will make music out of any object, strings or not! Long-time member of the legendary David Grisman Quintet, he has also performed with Stephane Grapelli and Jerry Garcia.
Rushad Eggleston – The Sneth Goblin is a Grammy-nominated cellist fluent in many folk genres, and the inventor of some of his own.  If you want your mind blown, check out his power-rock trio, Tornado Rider, in which he also “sings” and “dances”.
Brittany Haas – Fiddle player in the wildly popular Crooked Still, an Alternative-Bluegrass band based in Boston, Brittany also plays Appalachian mountain music better than it was ever meant to be played.
Jefferson Hamer – Offering vocal, guitar, and mandolin classes, Jefferson is a folk-rocker if there ever was one.  In addition to developing his own personal songwriting, he is deeply rooted in the traditional song of America and the British Isles.
Victor Lin – a versatile Jazz pianist, violinist, and bassist, this musical prodigy received a Doctorate in Jazz Education at Columbia University, where he still teaches.
Lauren Rioux – Past President of Maine ASTA, and ground-breaking teacher combining Classical Music and Old-time fiddle styles, she also tours with the Republic of Strings.
Mike Block –Multi-genre cellist, composer, educator, and Juilliard graduate who has toured regularly with Yo-Yo Ma, Mark O’Connor, and Darol Anger.
