Under the direction of Aaron Foster,a graduate of the Academy and now an advanced student in the bluegrass program of East Tennessee State University, and professional music teacher Mike Turk, the Jenny Brook Kids Academy has been resurrecting itself. Not limited to very young pickers, the Academy meets three times for long enough to provide help and develop a performance, but not too long to make it a burden. Details can be found here.
The Jenny Brook Bluegrass University will once again hold classes and provide lessons for bluegrass beginning pickers. The staff are all well-known New England teaching professionals, and the charges are more than reasonable.The Jenny Brook Theater will present PG or G rated films for young people in the evenings.
A good variety of food, craft, and instrument vendors are always available at Jenny Brook. There's a shortage of local establishments available for shopping, although there's a local convenience grocery in Tunbridge, as well as a food store and a hardware store in nearby Royalton. Don't miss breakfast at the Sugar Shack or maple flavored soft ice cream and other snacks.
If you require more than a twelve foot clearance, follow these alternative directions: If you are coming by car, or have a low profile camper such as a popup, you can take the shorter route of Vermont Route 14 south to Route 110 north instead of I-89. THERE IS A LOW UNDERPASS OF ONLY 12 FEET ON ROUTE 14!
