Fernando Jones' Blues Camp

Blues musician Fernando Jones, a Columbia College adjunct music faculty member, talks about his work in promoting and preserving the Blues traditions with today’s youth and creating his first Blues Camp for students in grades 6-12 scheduled for July 4-9 in Chicago. With participants selected during open auditions this past spring, students will receive free instrumental, vocal, and music writing instruction in a hands-on environment. Held on the Columbia College campus, the camp will culminate with a public concert in Chicago’s nearby Grant Park.
