2019 Festival Schedule
Dear Festival enthusiasts,
The 2019 daily schedule is now up, and can be accessed by clicking on the links below. We are very excited about some of the new concepts this year. For example, we will have a series of the “Business of Music” workshops. If any of you have considered managing a group or musician, or even yourself, or considered producing a recording, you will certainly be interested in these workshops. Included in this series will be Jessie Burns of Take Down the Door, who will be hosting a panel of musicians discussing the challenges of staying genuine and “human” in the music business.
We will also have a series on session playing, in which you, the aspiring musician, will be guided through the nuances of joining your instrument and talents in a session format. We will publish more information on that series shortly, but you find the workshops listed in the daily schedules below.
The following listings by category will be published shortly. You can also access the mail-in Registration Form here.
