Pete Wernick @ Midwest Banjo Camp
June 1, 2023 – June 4, 2023 EDT
North Manchester, IN
The Midwest Banjo Camp is one I’ve I’ve always enjoyed — a dazzling array of top players, both 3-finger and clawhammer: Munde, Trischka, Cahill, Baugus, Hurt, Blount and many other “stalwarts of the five”, plus even some 4-string instructors, Greg Blake on guitar, and … well, check out their website!
In addition to serving on the banjo teaching staff, I’ll be teaching Wernick Method jamming to all participants. This camp takes all instruments, so consider joining in!
The new location is by Ft. Wayne, IN, and with the pandemic receding it’s their first assembly since 2019 — so best get your spot early!
Pete Wernick is renowned worldwide for his accomplishments and contributions to bluegrass music: the hot-picking force in several trend-setting bands including Hot Rize, innovative teacher and author, songwriter, and long-term President of the International Bluegrass Music Association.
Always active in the teaching of banjo and bluegrass, Pete was the original pioneer of bluegrass music camps in the early 1980s. Having since taught about 200 camps in about half of the U.S. states and three other countries, he continues to host several per year.
In 2010, he launched the Wernick Method of teaching bluegrass jamming which as of 2021 has certified over 100 teachers offering classes in 46 states and 11 countries. See Pete’s full bio.
