“Overall this was an outstanding event that I will definitely be back for next year. The combination of a blues guitar camp with the history of blues woven in was a fantastic concept and the program excelled in both areas. Instructors were outstanding! Music selection was great. Fruteland Jackson, Billy Branch, and Roosevelt University staff were outstanding” - Tim Jozwiak
