A wonderful week is planned full of music classes, jammin’, making new friends and seeing old ones again in beautiful, historic Shepherdsville, Kentucky.


Over 150 class choices are taught during KMW including mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer and a wide variety of instruments, vocal, and craft classes covering different levels.


Dance classes are a great way for students to unwind from music classes, to get some exercise and to have a great time while learning new dances.

General Store

The KMW General Store offers a great place to meet with other campers as well as instructors. You can visit a variety of booths to purchase CDs, books, instruments, and more from Instructors and guest exhibitors, visit our dulcimer doctor, or join in an informal jam.


Jamming is always a highlight at Kentucky Music Week. Jams for all instruments and all levels are held at motels/hotels and at local campgrounds. KMW instructors lead the jams. These are a great way to hone the skills and songs learned in class. There are jams paced for absolute beginners as well.

Kids' Camp

Our fun-filled Kids’ Camp, for ages 7 – 12 year olds, offers a combination of music and craft classes taught by KMW staff and Kid’s Camp coordinators. Our Kids Camp instructor is a certified teacher with Nelson County, KY Schools. Location

North Bullitt High School will be our class location for 2022! North Bullitt High is all on one floor, with plenty of parking, access to all the classroom space we need for instructors, a large gym for vending and a smaller gym for dance classes, and so much more!

We are sure you will love our location this year!

Food During Kentucky Music Week

Breakfast is usually included with your motel rooms. Hampton Inn and Sure Stay Best Western General Nelson offer a full breakfast buffet. Most others have Continental breakfast items. There are many restaurants around Bardstown that offer a really good breakfast including Cracker Barrel, the Stephen Foster Restaurant, Mammy's Kitchen, and more.

Lunch offers several options: lunches will be catered in each day for those that want to purchase the lunch plan; you can purchase items from the concession stand; area restaurants are a short drive away or bring your own to the school.

The KMW lunch plan offers a different option each day. These include fried or roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, slaw and biscuit, Italian buffet with salad and bread, sandwiches with pasta salad, slaw, and chips, and more! All lunches come with dessert and either iced tea, lemonade or bottled water. If you have food allergies, need a vegetarian option, or special food requirements you may not want the KMW lunch plan.

Luncheon Salads are available at the concession stand with day-before pre-order. Concession stand is located right across the hall from the cafeteria and you are welcome to eat lunch there if you want.

Supper is on your own, however, there are many restaurants throughout Bardstown that are close to motels. A list of suggested restaurants will be provided in your Welcome Packet. Some restaurants give discounts to Kentucky Music Week participants! Your KMW name badge is your ticket for these discounts.

Special Events & Evening Activities

There is rarely a dull moment at Kentucky Music Week. Sunday, after you check in, there is a Welcome Party and JAM at the school. Great music and jam leaders, with hot snacks, and drinks available throughout the evening.

Monday evening is our Campground Jam at White Acres Campground. There is a large pavilion so rain or wet grass is not a factor. Lots of parking, too. Bring your own folding chairs and anything else you might need.

Tuesday and Thursday are our concert nights, held at nearby Parkway Baptist Church in Bardstown. This is a wonderful location with plenty of room for parking, etc.

Wednesday night you are on your own! There will be a special Jam and Sing-a-Long downtown at a parking lot across from Town & Country Bank at Third Street and Flaget Avenue. It is covered in case of rain. Bring your own folding chair, etc. Several downtown stores will remain open as well as Third Street restaurants.

Friday night is our Grand Finale' Jam at host hotels. It's always a big party night and one last chance to join together to play some favorite tunes!
