WUMB - Winter Acoustic Music Weekend

Guitar, banjo, mandolin, mountain dulcimer, singing and songwriting.

WUMB will host the second annual WUMB Winter Acoustic Music Weekend (WAMW) on February 28 - March 2, 2014, in Groton, Massachusetts. This will be a 'hands-on' New England acoustic music retreat. Come for camaraderie and classes, concerts and great guided and freestyle jams with first class players and teachers.

Lodging and six meals are included. Groton is about an hour northwest of downtown Boston. The camp is in a beautifully wooded area, and facilities are comfortable. Most rooms are doubles. The bathrooms are shared. The food is hearty, and the desserts are legendary. Walking between buildings is on fairly level ground, give or take possible snow banks! Oh & and there are several working fireplaces. Space is limited, and we encourage you to sign up.


Registration opens at 4:00 on Friday afternoon.
Dinner is at six.
Depart the campus on Sunday by 3:00pm.
