Saturday & Sunday

April 3-5, 2020

Choose among Workshops, Guided Jams, or One-on-Ones to create a personalized experience 



From Friday evening through Sunday morning, there will be 11 different 75-minute workshops. Workshops will take place upstairs in the room pictured.

Workshops are typically hands-on and interactive. They will be instrument-specific for the most part, though a few might be more topical.

Workshop titles from past Frolics include "Round Peak Roundup", "Basics of Bowing," "Beginning Fiddle," "Appalachian Banjo Styles," "Backup Rhythm Guitar," and "Carter Family Songs."

Workshop titles and descriptions will be announced here and on our Facebook Event Page.

Come and go as you please, and choose whichever aspects of the program appeal to you most. Feel free to start a jam of your own, or take some time to yourself to practice.


Or take a walk around the beautiful Land's Creek Cabins Property, or take a short drive to town to see what Bryson City has to offer. The Frolic is a retreat, whatever that means for you!

The weekend will wrap up with a group picture and lunch on Sunday.

"Between the one-on-ones, the jams, the camaraderie, good food, really good teachers, and, of course, the constant presence of Frank and Allie Lee making sure everything ran smoothly -

"I couldn't have asked for a better experience and well worth the money."

"It was only 3 days, but the Banjo-Fiddle Frolic made a huge impact on me and my quest to learn the fiddle.
