Heidi Olsen (Manasquan, NJ) has long been involved in the bluegrass scene in the Central New Jersey area, playing banjo with her band Heidi Olsen and The Night, and hosting the Bluegrass Jam radio program for 12 years. Heidi’s mission in life is to pass on her love of bluegrass by encouraging others to sing and play together. To that end she started a workshop ten years ago which has introduced many students to the joys of jamming. Students praise Heidi’s patient teaching style and her ability to get everyone jamming in a non-threatening environment.

“Heidi is very enthusiastic, supportive, and encouraging. She makes you smile!”
“If it wasn’t for Heidi, I don’t think I would even be playing bluegrass music.”
“Learning with Heidi has allowed me to develop the confidence to play out with others — a dream I had all but forgotten.”
“Inspiring, positive and engaging attitude … the group wants to do well for themselves but also for you.”
“It was all a great experience for me. Heidi had just the right combination of toughness and sweetness to foster a perfect learning environment.”
“I especially appreciated her tips on jamming etiquette and feel I am comfortable enough to participate in a jam session.”
