You can also take part in some of the workshops presented for the public. Learn instrumental styles, and get into singer and songwriter sessions.

If you don't have an instrument now, you may walk off with one at the musical instrument swap meet. On the last day in the morning, there will also be country gospel singing. So make your way to Sharlot Hall Museum in October and get busy having lots of fun!
