"It dawned on me that CAMP CALVIN isn't a place....it is an atmosphere"  D. Ingram


Calvin is offering a 2nd session of video fiddle lessons, starting March 1, 2022.  A 1-hr lesson on the first Tuesday of every month for 8 months (Mar-Jun & Sept-Dec).

For this 2nd session, Calvin is adding a monthly 'Tips & Techniques' along with a new tune in a variety of different styles offered every month.

Your registration fees comes with the Sheet Music (Notes or TAB), the MP3 & the Backing Track of the tune, all for one low fee. Sign up monthly or subscribe for the 8-mth session. Subscribers get access to the video for review long after the lesson is over, a great deal.

Grand North American Old Time Fiddle Championship

The Grand North American Old Time Fiddle Championship will be held on the weekend prior to summer Camp Calvin 2022 at the Dow Centennial Centre in Fort Saskatchewan on July 15-17, 2022. Plan to attend both, Fort Saskatchewan is only a 1.5 hr drive to St. Paul.

The 2021 contest was held virtually on Facebook on the weekend of July 17 & 18 prior to the start of Camp Calvin. Catch the 2-day contest on the Facebook group 37th annual Grand North American Old Time Fiddling Championship.

Jam Tunes

At Camp Calvin 2015, a list of jam tunes typically played at Camp Calvin was compiled in a 'Jam Tunes' workshop.

In anticipation of every Camp Calvin where many of these tunes get played, we have posted the compiled list here for your convenience.  We invite you to go through the list and check to see how many tunes you know?
