Once again, it is my pleasure to invite you all to Frets & Refrains, our guitar and songwriting camp. This will be our 7th year, and we hope it will be the best yet! Confirmed on the staff are Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Patty Griffin, Celtic guitar whizz Tony McManus, songwriter Teddy Thompson, steel guitar ace Cindy Cashdollar, and regulars Happy Traum, Sloan Wainwright, Zak Hobbs, Jack Thompson, Simon Tassano, Bobby Eichorn, Annaliese Tassano, and Camp Mom Nancy Covey.
There are a few elements that make our camp special; the climate is perfect, warm but not too warm, being up the mountain a couple of thousand feet; the location is perfectly suited to our needs, with lots of teaching space and rehearsal space and jamming space; our staff are just the finest you could ask for; the food is fabulous; and the attendees learn so much from each other - those who come year after year have formed extraordinary ties with the camp and with each other. It is true to say that there is a Frets & Refrains community that intercommunicates year-round and makes every camp so uplifting. We also have a strong presence from our scholarship programme for under-25s - their energy gives a great demographic balance to the whole camp.
Dates next year are July 9 - 13. I really hope you can join us for what I believe will be a musical experience without parallel!
