We’re pleased to once again offer DelFest Academy the Monday – Wednesday prior to the festival, May 23rd – 25th, 2016. The Academy consists of a friendly, encouraging and intensive three-day learning experience with some of the finest musicians in bluegrass, and offers instruction for guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin and bass for all experience levels.  Students will receive instruction targeted to their individual needs, with plenty of opportunity for one-on-one interaction.

The cost of the 2016 Academy is $400 and you can register here.
