Roots Camp

UL School of Music’s Traditional Music Program & Louisiana Folk Roots Present Roots Camp!

This three day music and education camp is for the more advanced young adult musician ages 14-17. Roots Camp focuses on giving the tools needed to gain a better understanding of traditional music and the use of modern recording techniques, such as music theory, introduction to studio recording, exploring other forms of music and more, including giving the student a look into the UL Lafayette School of Music. This year’s camp focuses on Louisiana Blues, all led by camp staff instructors Jonno Frishberg, Brazos Huval, Chris Munson and Mark DeWitt.

New campers will need to send us a quick video performing the song of your choice or “La Valse de Vache.” If you attended last year’s Roots Camp, no need to apply again, simply email us and let us know you would like to return this year.

The three-day intensive camp is $200; campers will purchase lunch daily in the UL Lafayette Student Union.
