house Camp | BOSTON, MA: MARCH 3-5, 2017
MILES OF MUSIC BOSTON HOUSE CAMP is a multi-class, weekend workshop in Boston. We explore traditional folk music, modern songwriting, and how they work together. All events will take place at a lovely private home in East Boston. The weekend begins on Friday night with a potluck, instructor living room concert and even dancing a square. We spend Saturday and Sunday taking class and enjoying home-cooked meals. Saturday night will wrap up with a living room camper concert and Sunday we will have an all camp jam on the stoop (weather permitting).
Instruments taught include fiddle, banjo, guitar, uke and singing, as well as non-instrument-specific skills like songwriting, ensemble playing, ear training, arranging and performance.
Our house camps are intimate events in private homes. They are a great place to meet other traditional musicians and songwriters in your local community. Two, three sometimes even four classes take place simultaneously in living rooms, offices etc. Students and volunteers help transform the space from classroom to communal banquet hall and back again throughout the weekend.
