The first jam session is slated for Tuesday on the newly built Sennheiser S1 Stage near the Corn Roast in the campgrounds. Just added to the schedule are special 10 a.m. workshops each morning, Tuesday through Saturday, for children, to show them how to how fun with music. Children are encouraged to bring their own instruments, including their band instruments, John Zapp, FAM founder said. “We would love to have the kids come out and learn how to jam,” he said.
FMA members will be performing throughout the show at the Sunset Grill, AOPA Pavilion, the Corn Roast, and the Flying High Coffee locations.
