String Band, Trombone Shorty, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Bela Fleck, Tony Rice, Sam Bush and Chris Thile.  At Trout and Tunes, guests will be hanging out at the Elk River Inn, Cabins & Restaurant located in the high peaks of West Virginia. Elk River has plenty of things to do when you’re not learning a new lick. Fly and spin casting for trout, hiking and mountain bike trail right out the door or just relaxing with a cold beverage near the campfire. Everyone is a VIP at Trout & Tunes!

Planned activities include several fly fishing clinics offered during the day by Elk River guides and staff; Andrew White (the builder of one of Larry’s guitars) will be speaking on what it takes to construct an instrument with parts of instruments in different stages and much more. Also guitar, mandolin, banjo and bass guitar instruction will be the highlight throughout guest’s stay. Evening picking sessions on Thursday, Friday will build up to a very special concert Saturday evening to cap things off. All meals from Thursday evening through Sunday breakfast are included in this very special weekend. Costs are $495 plus tax Farm house 5 bedrooms share 3 baths / $595 plus tax Private Inn room with private bath or groups of 3-6 private cabins.
