    You asked for it, we deliver: jams, Jams, JAMS! Guided slow jams, intermediate and advanced jams, workshops, concerts and much more! Designated spaces will be laid out for each camp, with unlimited spots to hold you own jam.

    Workshops and jam sessions are being offered this year in a more spontaneous fashion. Volunteer workshop and jam leaders will post their offerings on the big marker board in the middle of the camp. Discount offered to all music leaders (please consider giving a workshop or leading a jam during the weekend).

    The weekend will start off with our wood fired pizza bar and a concert featuring Nate Paine and the Mudslingers followed by a called square dance in the new music barn!… plus a do-it-yourself concert/coffee house on Saturday night following the musicians Potluck Supper. Please check out our site for more details here.

    Hey Joe

    Steve, Erica Brown and Matt Shipman along with many of their band members are always a pleasure to be with as well as play with and learn from. This year were combining the week with the Old Time Camp Out we have here in Maine each fall. Should be a blast. If you ever make it this way get in touch. There's a few local jams happening every week. Please help us spread the word.
    Thank you for commenting,
    Steve
