For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine
The Flatpicking Camp and Americana Music fest enter a new chapter with the move to The Rafting Company next year ..The intimacy of The Bend will be hard to recreate , but the ability to host pickers onsite, with full hookup sites , and a top quality RV Park on the banks of the Beautiful Upper Meramec will add dimensions you wont find anywhere .. even Walnut Valley .. I intend to bring the same hi quality entertainment , and incredible picking workshops and jamming that everyone is used to, and add the convenience of not having to leave..
I hope you will bear with me as we sort out the details , and I look forward to seeing you back next year !
