How we measure up....

"The Blues Guitar Camp at the Shack Up Inn in Clarksdale, MS exceeded my expectations. Being a novice and a late blooming guitar player I never felt out of my comfort zone. Everybody was friendly and serious about why they were there... to learn to play The Blues, and it was really fun too. The curriculum covered all the bases and was never boring or redundant. The coaches were professional and loved what they do. There is no better place to have this camp than at The Shack Up Inn!!! Blues is truly spoken there ...accommodations and food were Southern Hospitality at it's finest. There is nothing like playing The Blues on a working plantation in The Delta .......... I'll be back Fo' Sure."
