The Northern Roots Weekend features a series of intensive teaching
workshops in traditional music with highly experienced and engaging
instructors. Some classes will focus on technique specific to fiddle,
flute, whistle, mandolin and guitar, but all instruments are welcome.
Some experience in traditional music required and a recording device
is recommended.

A dance band workshop will review the basics of playing for contra
dancing but will also be an opportunity to form mini ensembles and
experiment with arranging. Evening dancing will be a chance for
musicians to play for dancing and to enjoy a good romp on the floor.

The Northern Roots Weekend will also be a wonderful chance to enjoy
informal jam sessions and pub style singing in a lovely country
setting (with swimming) in Dummerston, Vermont at Green Mountain
Camp, located just 10 minutes from downtown Brattleboro.

Camp begins Friday at 5pm through Sunday at 1pm with wonderful meals
provided beginning with Friday supper through Sunday brunch. Rustic
cabin accommodation available and also good camping.
