Description

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 both Guitar and Songwriting are open to everyone. You can also immerse yourself in Guitar with British guitar master MARTIN SIMPSON or guitarist/performer/teacher HAPPY TRAUM. For those needing help with those tough RT chords ZAK HOBBS breaks it down in his Guitar Circle. Wildly diverse musician and collaborator, HENRY KAISER, will share strategies and how to have more fun with music! This year we have 3 songwriting teachers! The incredible singer songwriter, TEDDY THOMPSON, returns to camp along with MARISSA NADLER, one of RT’s favorite artists for 2018 plus a special guest songwriting teacher to be announced soon! SLOAN WAINWRIGHT gives heart-filled 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. Also… surprise guest Workshop TBA.

In the evenings JACK THOMPSON hosts a fantastic Open Mic available to everyone.

The final night of Frets & Refrains 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.

As you know, one thing that makes our camp so special is the incredible mix of ages- thanks to our Zoe Klimley Scholarship program that YOU all started!

With your help, we can continue to fund all the deserving scholarship applicants! The more money we raise, the more generous we can be

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!
