Kids Mountain Music Camp is a sponsored by The McCall Folklore Society & The Annual Summer Music Festival at Roseberry, along with many other amazing sponsors and grants. The goal of the camp is to expose budding musicians to traditional and non-traditional bluegrass or mountain music.

KMMC is a three day workshop in beautiful McCall Idaho. The classrooms are in Ponderosa State Park on the McCall Outdoor Science School campus overlooking beautiful Payette lake.

During the 3 days (10am-3:00pm) children ages 8-17 will learn basic music skills and history of American folk music with emphasis on Folk, Bluegrass, and Old Time music. Classes cover many instruments including mandolin, guitar, fiddle, banjo, drums, plus songwriting, and vocals.

At the end of classes, students are encouraged to participate in the camp concert at the Summer Music Festival at Roseberry on the MainStage. This performance will be the opening act for the entire festival and gives the students real life experience of performing for a live audience.

‘LINEAGE ROOTS BAND’

Lineage is the band formed by Chad Fisher for many reasons. His vision began as he realized he still needs to perform himself to stay sharp as well to be fulfilled as a musician. He also needed a group of musicians passionate about supporting upcoming musicians during the occasional student performance. Lineage as a whole is passionate providing a great performance experience, as well as nurturing budding musicians who may be new to performing in public. Another reason is just for the love of playing music!
