The Louis Jay Meyers Music Camp (recently re-named for its late founder) is celebrating six years offering the finest musical instruction. It is a camp like no other, where pros study with legends and dedicated hobbyists learn from the best in the field.
Louis Jay Meyers was the Executive Director of Folk Alliance International (FAI) from 2005 – 2014. A native of Austin, Texas and one of the founders of SXSW (South by Southwest), Louis was an avid banjo and pedal steel player and was a tireless champion for musicians. His creation of FAI’s Music Camp is perhaps the most significant example of his vision for community building and his passion for great music. Louis’ vision for the camp was clear: a community built around learning and playing music, where the focus is on the exchange of knowledge and sharing of traditions, where world-class musicians serve as instructors to students of all ages and levels. Louis’ original vision is the foundation for the Music Camp, and his legacy of community inclusion and passion for music continues today.
