Northern California Bluegrass Society Walker Creek Scholarship Fund Assists Deserving Music Camp Students At This Weekend’s Fall Session

Ingrid Noyes

The committee that runs the Northern California Bluegrass Society Walker Creek Music Camp Scholarship Fund has awarded two partial scholarships to deserving students for the fall camp, which will be held this weekend, October 6-9, 2016, near Petaluma.

One recipient is a 13-year-old aspiring bass player whose father has been unemployed for much of the past year. The other is a college student who plays banjo & guitar and will earn the balance of her camp tuition by assisting with the camp’s youth program.

Thanks to Ingrid Noyes, who runs the music camp, which is held each spring and fall and is open to both adults and children. Thanks also to the NCBS committee that manages the fund.
