BLUES CAMP UK

by Sam Kelly

For the past three years I have been invited to work as part of the Blues Camp UK team, encouraging all ages and abilities to develop their musical “talents”.  We have complete beginners to the accomplished musician, youngsters, teenagers, entire families and the “bus pass” brigade.  This is such a fun-filled, action packed weekend – and we always have a surprise ‘celebrity’ or two pitching in and helping with the programme.  Check out the promo video below.  Hope to see you next year!! Dates are 25th – 27th July 2014.  More information on www.bluescampuk.co.uk
