Youth Programming Overview

PineCone’s Youth Programming is an integral part of our commitment to preserving traditional music that’s rooted in the Piedmont. Through Summer Bluegrass Camps, School Programs, Workshops, Jams and an active PineCone Youth Council, we welcome kids interested in trying their hand at folk music. If there’s a young person in your life who’s musically inclined, but has gotten stuck, we’d love to try to help get them playing more freely.

Youth Council

The PineCone Youth Council is a group of friends that works together to build a vibrant, connected and growing community of young musicians who play traditional roots music.

Bluegrass Camps

PineCone hosts summer camps for kids ages 8-18 interested in learning how to play bluegrass instruments. Campers also learn to jam together and make friends through the music.

Youth Jams

The PineCone Youth Jam is created by youth, for youth. It’s a great way to learn tunes, improve your playing and make new friends.

School Programs

With performances, in class residencies and after school programs we help local students and teachers connect with folk music that's rooted in their community.
