I just returned from Bluegrass Week at Augusta Heritage and it was magical. There is no other way to describe being surrounded by the teachers and students on a beautiful campus in the cool mountains of West Virginia. The program is intense.

This event occurs every August on Davis and Elkins college campus. Each week has a theme. Dance. Country. They have students studying with masters and have shows in evening? Very much worth the visit. Lots to do. They also have a craft market with unusual and delightful offerings. Hope to attend again this year!!
