Description

Greetings and welcome to year three of the most unusual, forward thinking, open-minded guitar camp on the planet! This year we are thrilled to welcome Mike Stern, widely considered one of the most important jazz guitarists of our generation. Mike's intersection of rock, funk, and jazz has fueled a remarkable career, whose highlights include stints with Miles Davis, Michael Brecker, and Dennis Chambers, as well as 6 Grammy nominations for his own work. His wife Leni Stern will be offering insights into blending jazz with traditional music from Mali and India. Ben Monder will discuss his endlessly inventive use of chords and his staggering single note runs that cross all stylistic boundaries, while Julian Lage will show us what it takes to become fantastically fluent in multiple styles of American music. And of course I will be on hand as well.

NOTE: Julian Lage's attendance is still tentative. We should know by December if he can free up the time to join us. if you would like to know who might replace Julian should he not be available, please contact Joel Harrison directly.

Primarily a camp for improvisers, especially in the jazz realm, but all teachers are truly great rock and blues musicians as well, so you should not feel bashful about signing up if you don't know a lot about jazz.

You'll get to perform with the teachers and who will make the classes elastic enough to suit all needs and levels. Novice to advanced welcome, no beginners please.

Packages include all workshops, seminars, meals, performances, use of the grounds and your choice of accommodations. All activities will be held at Full Moon Resort which features an eclectic array of comfortable, rustic country-inn style accommodations including simple B&B style guest rooms with shared hallway baths as well as private guest rooms with private baths. Also available are premium cottages equipped with private deck with mountain views, air conditioning, television, radiant floor heating and dual head shower heads in the luxury and spacious bathroom. All accommodations are just steps away from the daily activities. The grounds offer a spring-fed swimming pool and one hundred acres of meadows, forests and streams. In addition, guests are welcome to explore the splendors of the Catskills on the nearby network of hiking trails.
