Sherbrooke Village Expands Music Camp Programs

first_imgSherbrooke Village music camps are being expanded this coming season because of the positive response from both attendees and instructors last year. The Road to Stanfest Songwriting Camp, produced in partnership with the Stan Rogers Folk Festival, now features six instructors, up from four last year. Instructors Chuck Brodsky, Dave Carroll, Clary Croft, Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart and Valdy will help writers of all levels improve their songwriting skills from June 30 to July 3. Each camp registrant will be able to perform their music on a special stage during the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. From July 7 to July 10, the Sherbrooke Now Fiddle Camp will feature instructors Kimberley and Skip Holmes, and Ivan and Vivian Hicks. This new camp will teach students fiddle, guitar and piano in historic Sherbrooke Village. The final music camp of the season will take place from Oct. 6 to Oct. 9. The Road to Celtic Colours Music Camp provides a spirited lead-in to the Celtic Colours International Festival. A range of workshops in fiddle, piano and guitar will be offered daily with instructors Stan Chapman, Wendy MacIsaac and Patrick Gillis. Informal musical gatherings will be held each evening with camp participants featured as performers. The music camp season will wrap up on Oct. 9 as the Fifth Annual Road to Celtic Colours Ceilidh takes place at the Sherbrooke Courthouse. The concert will feature Celtic Camp instructors and students as the Road to the Isles runs through Sherbrooke.
