SaskScapes host Kevin Power heads to Ness Creek, just outside of Big River, SK and visits the annual Bluegrass Music Camp. This episode highlights the Creative Kids initiative, part of SaskCulture. Creative Kids provides opportunities to kids who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend activities such as art, dance, heritage and music. Guests in this episode include Emma, a fiddler and Creative Kids recipient, "In with the Old", a young Saskatchewan bluegrass trio, the Clements Brothers from New England who are two of the top-notch instructors at this camp, and three of the key organizers who volunteer their time and efforts to make this camp the unforgettable experience that it has become.
