Description

Frets and Refrains features master guitar and songwriting classes by Richard Thompson and special guests.

Classes are for all ages and all levels – in a fun, relaxing, camp environment! Each night there are music films, Open Mics in the Roadhouse and jamming under the stars!

FRETS & REFRAINS IS FOR MUSICIANS AND MUSIC LOVERS OF ALL AGES AND ALL LEVELS IN A NON – COMPETITIVE, RELAXING CAMP ENVIRONMENT IN THE BEAUTIFUL CATSKILLS MOUNTAINS

Richard Thompson and Nancy Covey started Frets & Refrains 7 years ago as a way to inspire songwriters and guitarists alike in a peaceful, fun and gorgeous mountain setting. At the heart of camp was our family members (Teddy, Jack, and Zak) plus musician friends we knew and admired. What we soon discovered is that Frets & Refrains created it’s own family of friends who adore this special week and are keen to share it with newcomers. And so the extended family continues!

SO much to choose from! Master classes with RICHARD THOMPSON in Guitar and Songwriting are open to everyone. You can also immerse yourself in Guitar with the incredible Celtic finger style guitar master TONY McMANUS or guitarist/performer/teacher HAPPY TRAUM. TEDDY THOMPSON plus special guest teachers (soon to be announced) will hold inspiring classes in the craft of Songwriting. SLOAN WAINWRIGHT gives heartfilled encouragement to campers in Singing and Performance for both proficient singers and those who would like to be.

Plus specialty workshops! Unravel the mysteries of Sound Production with SIMON TASSANO or tune up your Guitar Maintenance with BOBBY EICHORN who also teaches Beginning Guitar and Songwriting. As a bonus check out the workshop with steel guitar/dobro ace CINDY CASHDOLLAR. And for those needing help with those tough RT chords ZAK HOBBS breaks it down in his daily Guitar Circle.

In the evenings JACK THOMPSON hosts a fantastic Open Mic open to everyone. The final night enjoy a concert with Richard Thompson and all the staff after which Jack wraps camp up with a super fun Dance Party!

Camp Mom, NANCY COVEY, holds the whole thing together from early morning yoga‘til late night round the campfire.

So join us for a week of music, swimming, hiking, yoga, films, open mic, campfires, and jamming under the stars - plus great food. No wonder Frets & Refrains always sells out!
