Hey, it's getting close to SUMMER MUSIC CAMP season! Hopefully the 2022 camps will actually happen. I am planning on being there!
First of all, there is the wonderful COLORADO ROOTS MUSIC CAMP. Located in a spectacular setting in the Rocky Mountains, this camp is one of my favorites. I'll be there WEEK ONE, JUNE 5-11, 2022. It's going to be a GREAT week for swing music--Raul Reynoso, Radim Zenkl, Jennifer Scott, and Rene Worst will all be there along with many other wonderful staffers and campers.
PSGW is like home to me--located just across Puget Sound on the Olympic peninsula, it's a quick ferry ride away from Seattle. I've been teaching there for over 35 years. It's been a great source of musical community and support for all those who have found a home there. This year I'll be there on the week of July 23-29. Keep an eye on the PSGW WEBSITE for information about the other folks on staff--I'm really looking forward to being there with these fine folks!
Meanwhile, musical life in the time of Covid...
I'm a film maker! My video "Thank You Trees" is going to be part of the NW Folklife Film Forum. See the Tree Goddess defeat the evil Folk Musician Loggers! It will be showing on the big screen at SIFF https://www.siff.net on Saturday, May 28, 2:30 PM. Or just click on the YouTube link and put up with the funky resolution.
