DAY 3 – Targhee Bluegrass Camp


The first half of the morning was spent learning fills (instrumental lines between vocal phrases) on Blue Ridge Cabin Home. We learned them in triple fiddle harmony!

The last half of the morning was dedicated to learning the tune Roanoke (G).Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys - The Very Best of Bill Monroe and His Blue Grass Boys - Roanoke



For the afternoon, campers and instructors took the Dream Catcher chairlift to the summit of the mountain — with instruments. We jammed on an observation platform overlooking the Grand Tetons. The only requirement was that the song had to reference mountains.
