BOSTON AND BROOKLYN HOUSE CAMPS NOW TAKING REGISTRATIONS!

Kristin Andreassen

HOUSE CAMP is an intimate weekend workshop taking place in either a private home (March 3-5 in Boston) or at the cozy Jalopy Theatre and Tavern (March 10-12 in Brooklyn). We explore traditional folk music, modern songwriting, and how they work together. The weekend begins on Friday night with a concert and square dance. Workshops take place from 10am-6pm on Saturday with a break for a gourmet buffet lunch a sit down banquet style dinner and a camper concert. Classes on Sunday go from 10am till around 3pm, with a break in the middle for lunch and cookies for our farewell jam. 

Instruments taught include fiddle, banjo, guitar, uke (Boston), mandolin (Brooklyn) and singing, as well as non-instrument-specific skills like songwriting, ensemble playing, ear training, arranging and performance.

This year the theme in Boston is Old Time Music & Social Change with MIKE & RUTHY, AVI SALLOWAY, PIERCE WOODWARD, ELLIE BUCKLAND, ISA BURKE, LAURA CORTESE and  KRISTIN ANDREASSEN

In Brooklyn, our theme will be Africa & Appalachia: Finding Creativity Within a Traditional Music Culture with ANNA ROBERTS-GEVALT, ELIZABETH LAPRELLE, SAMIR LANGUS, JOE WALSH, ELI WEST and MARIEL VANDERSTEEL

Our house camps are intimate events. 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. Students and volunteers help transform the space from classroom to communal banquet hall and back again throughout the weekend.
