WUMB August Program Guide

Are YOU coming to SAMW Week 1 This Year?

You should be — in addition to our regular July instructor stalwarts, we’re bringing back Reggie Harris!

In a career spanning over 40 years of songwriting, performing, and social activism Reggie has played and taught in dozens of venues, educational institutions, camps and all manner of folk music gatherings.  And from July 14-20, at Geneva Point Conference Center on Lake Winnipesauke, he is bringing all of that expertise to WUMB’s Summer Acoustic Music Week to share with you!  

This summer Reggie will teach Painting With Strings, a guitar class focused on treating your instrument like a canvas on which to create textured, dynamic arrangements.  He is also teaching The Spirit of Song, a class in which you will learn to use song to create change, both in your life and in the world around you.  Reggie will also be involved in workshops, concert and radio performances, and generally be available for the personal interaction and mentoring that make the SAMW camp experience unique.  We are so excited to have him with us again!

And if that’s not enough reason to come to camp, you can learn from and spend time with the rest of our incredible Week 1 instructors:

Rolly Brown
Kate Campbell
John Doerschuk
Lorraine Hammond
Bennett Hammond
Chris James
Pete Kennedy
Maura Kennedy
Alonzo Pennington
Cosy Sheridan
Pam Weeks
Charles Williams

These artists are the reason that people come to camp year after year — it’s impossible to take all of the classes you want in just one go!  But it is our great fortune that these musicians also come back to camp, because they love the experience of teaching at SAMW.

Visit the SAMW Website to learn about all of the instructors and classes, to get detailed information about SAMW fees and accommodations, and to register online.  Or call Patty Domeniconi at 617-287-6915 and reserve your spot — spaces are limited and filling fast!

Don’t miss this opportunity to spend a summer week doing something you really love, and that you’ll keep for a lifetime — we hope to see you in July!
