The first day of Fretmentor’s 3rd Annual Banjo, Fiddle, Guitar and Mandolin Workshop, featuring Alan Munde, Jim Hurst and Byron Berline, was a memorable one. Approximately 50 attendees arrived from as far as England, New York, Georgia and various communities from Florida.
Morning and afternoon instructional classes were held throughout the day. In addition to a healthy lunch being served, all in attendance enjoyed snacks, drinks and the best cheesecake on the planet. During a break, students formed their own outside bluegrass jams. Finally, the evening ended with an exclusive concert held by three gifted performers and instructors. To see Alan, Byron and Jim perform was a special treat for each and every person in attendance. Also, Elliott Rogers, guest guitarist from the Alan Munde Gazette, performed a couple of tunes with the Alan and Byron. To say that it was a special time is an understatement.
Tomorrow is another day. This weekend will soon pass but the memories of a truly unique musical event will remain with us for some time.
