MEET CLARA GUILMETTE!

I grew up playing the banjo and attending bluegrass festivals around New England.  While at these festivals, I participated in many of the Kids Academies.  For the past four years, I have taken on an instructor roll at the Podunk Bluegrass Festival’s Kids Academy.  For the past several years, my band, Bend In The River, has been performing at local venues and festivals around New England.  In May of 2024, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Central Connecticut State University.  I am looking forward to sharing my passion for bluegrass music, and being the director of the Jenny Brook Kids Academy this year!

CONGRATULATIONS CLARA!

We are so excited for you that you received your Bachelors Degree in Music Education and honored to have you as the Jenny Brook Kids Academy Director!
