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.

2015 will see the twentieth Sore Fingers Week we shall be celebrating with some of the best tutors we have seen at Kingham. What kind of magic will materialise is anybody's guess but it will sure be an event to remember. Don't miss it and it will probably book up quickly so don't leave anthing to chance.
