Appalachian Singing Study Camp will be an intensive five-day Appalachian singing study on beautiful Gambier Island, BC.
***Songroots Appalachia Camp is currently full! If you would like to be added to the wait list – you can fill out the application below and I will get in touch with you if a spot opens up. There will most likely just be room in the shared canvas tents and to bring your own tent. ***
From Monday August 31st – Friday Sept 4th we will be staying, eating and singing at beautiful Camp Fircom on Gambier Island, BC. We will enjoy 4-6 hours of singing classes each day – learning about Appalachian Harmonies, Early Country, Brother Harmonies, Trios, Songwriting, Primitive Baptist and Shape Note Singing. Overall the focus will be on getting more comfortable with the style, tone, sound and feel of this kind of music. There will also be the opportunity to sing in small groups – one on a part and learn historical/cultural context. We will also have music listening sessions and a dance! There will be time for some hiking/kayaking/exploring in the area. In the evenings we will enjoy a private house concert by our fabulous instructors, a square dance in Pavillion and a student concert on our final night!
Our instructors are the amazing Beverly Smith, Ginny Hawker, Laurie Lewis, Emily Miller and Pharis Romero.
