About the Instructors and Performers:

Tim May is the kind of guy everyone likes. He''s humorous, humble, easy-going, and fun to be around. He's also an accomplished guitar player, singer, and songwriter -and one of Nashville's acoustic guitar ""go-to guys"." For fifteen years Tim focused on his job as the guitar player for the Nashville-based bluegrass band Crucial Smith. When that band broke up in 2002 the job offers started pouring in. Recent highlights include touring with Patty Loveless, playing on the all-star cast Rounder project Moody Bluegrass, and recording a bluegrass gospel project with Charlie Daniels. Additionally, FGM Records has released Tim''s solo CD Find My Way Back and Tim is also featured in a new FGM Records concert DVD, Live in Kansas City, with Brad Davis and Cody Kilby. While there are plenty of great guitar pickers in Nashville, Tim May adds great songwriting and singing to his list of many talents, which include being equally adept at resonator guitar, banjo, bass, and mandolin. When he is not on the road or in the recording studio Tim works building and repairing stringed instruments.

Dan Miller has been the publisher and editor of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine since 1996. He has also co-authored a number of flatpicking books, including: The Bluegrass Guitar Style of Charles Sawtelle with Charles Sawtelle, Flatpicking the Blues with Brad Davis, and the eight volume flatpicking course Flatpicking Essentials with Tim May. Tim May and Dan Miller also have been performing in a trio with their good friend Brad Davis since 2005.

Geoffrey Rutledge is an award winning singer/songwriter who has been playing professionally for over two decades. A favorite at the Texas Kerrville Folk Festival. Geoffrey's keen ability to convey his interesting perspective on life through his songwriting, in combination with his rich, smooth voice and sardonic wit, charms audiences from coast to coast. Geoffrey has made music professionally from Key West to San Francisco. An insightful, soulful singer/songwriter, Geoffrey's musical influences range from James Taylor to Sting to Stevie Wonder. He received the Northern California Songwriters Association's prestigious "Song of the Year" award, and has played the main stage at the Kerrville Folk Festival for the past six years running. He's also shared the stage at various venues with such prominent artists as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, David Crosby & Graham Nash, and John Prine (to name just a few) and has worked in the studio with Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, and Dean Parks.
