Welcome

SFSS: Kingham Hill School Sore Fingers Summer Schools is Europe's leading organisation for bluegrass and old-time music camps, offering world class tuition for all the instruments played in bluegrass as well as old-time fiddle and banjo, autoharp and singing.

Sore Fingers Summer Schools run two events. The main event of the year is Sore Fingers Week, a five day residential course held in the Cotswolds at Easter time, during which musicians of all levels can learn and improve their knowledge and skills. It is a complete experience where you can escape the daily routine and immerse yourself in music and fun for a whole week. Many become hooked and return year after year.

We also run a weekend course in late October with the same classes as the main event (depending on demand), allowing people to try out the experience over a shorter period.
