Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp is a music instruction camp founded by legendary guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and his wife Vanessa in the hills of rural SE Ohio. With workshops, concerts, fairs, and exhibits at the Psylodelic Gallery, the Fur Peace Ranch nourishes the soul while educating the mind and the fingers. Workshops scheduled for 2015 include:
The Fur Peace Ranch “On The Road” 2015 workshops return to The Dana on Mission Bay in San Diego, California. Take a break from winter’s woes while learning from master musicians Jorma Kaukonen, G.E. Smith, and Larry Campbell. San Diego’s perfect climate and the premier beach setting at The Dana will be our home. Join us.
Music and San Diego’s beauty draws you in and surrounds you with delight at this premier waterfront resort. Join the workshop and bring friends and family along. There’s plenty to do for all…or just lie back, relax, strum a few notes. It is a short trip to downtown San Diego and walking distance to Sea World. Mission Bay Park, a 4,600 acre wonderland is right next door. The Dana has it all!

February 09–13, 2015
