Flute and Pennywhistle

Even though the name of the camp is Maine Fiddle Camp, you can sign up to learn wooden flute or pennywhistle with “no strings attached”.. This year Sharon and Sandy will be teaming up to offer instruction at all levels, and you don’t even need to bring an instrument, since pennywhistles will be available at camp. Finally, since Fiddle Camp is located on True’s Pond, Sandy also reminds us that the whistle is one of the few instruments you can take swimming with you!! Sign up here.
