Mount Airy Old-Time Retreat

Make Time for Old-Time as we warm up for the Mount Airy Bluegrass and Old-Time Fiddlers Convention.

Classes will be held in venues at the Veterans Memorial Park. Classes include fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass, and mandolin. There will also be slow jams that incorporate dancing, "hot seats" and more! Classes will be small as retreat attendance is limited to no more than 50. Registrants are free to change classes until class size limit is met. Please email Dana at for class changes.

2019 Instructors include Andy Edmonds, Kevin Fore, John Herrmann, Carl Jones, Erynn Marshall, Meredith McIntosh, Chester McMillian, Emily Spencer, Martha Spencer, and Kirk Sutphin.

Tuition includes classes, lunch and dinner on Wednesday and Thursday, event tickets, and a t-shirt.

The Mount Airy Old-Time retreats are supported in part by the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
