Nationally recognized flat pick instructors Robin Kessinger, Robert Shafer and Jim Ritchey are instructors for a weekend tailored for guitarists. The annual Guitar Workshop Weekend is scheduled for March 22-24 at Twin Falls Resort State Park. The workshop will begin with a Friday night instructors' mini-concert and jam session and will conclude Sunday afternoon.

"If you're interested in fine-tuning finger-picking techniques, getting tips from a national flat-picking champion, hitting chords and licks, and learning the etiquette of jamming, this is the weekend for you," said Bryan Danford, activities coordinator at Twin Falls.

The Guitar Workshop Weekend is $140 per person based on double occupancy at Twin Falls Lodge.
The package includes two nights' lodging, the workshop fee, a full lunch on Saturday and Sunday, break refreshments, and door prizes. For the workshop only, without overnight accommodations, the price is $70 per person. Cabin rates and other package prices are available. Advance reservations are required.

Twin Falls Resort is located in Wyoming County on Route 97 near Pineville and Mullens. The park
features a newly renovated 47-room lodge, restaurant, vacation cabins, campground, golf course and an extensive hiking trail system.
