In preparation for the opening of the RockyGrass Academy lottery on Monday (Nov 7), we've begun announcing the faculty for the 2012 Academy...

We're thrilled to welcome 2 brilliant bands-in-residence:
Punch Brothers featuring Chris Thile
The Infamous Stringdusters

We're busy confirming additional instructors (which we'll announce as soon as they confirm), but this initial faculty list should get you excited.  It's certainly got us counting down the days until July 22...

Already signed up for the lottery.  Any idea what my chances are for intermediate mandolin?  And is Jesse Cobb going to instruct along with Chris Thile?

Anybody have an idea of how likely you are to get picked for the lottery?  I've never gone to the Academy before.  I signed up for intermediate mandolin and vocals, and I have a sinking feeling that both of those options are going to be pretty darn popular this year.
