Vinland Newfoundland Music Camp (5) Newfoundland Music Camp 02 Apr 02


There's a new traditional music camp in Newfoundland this summer. It takes place August 25-31, 2002 in beautiful Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada. It's for musicians of all ages (8 yrs.+) and levels. Students will develop their performance skills, learn the history of Newfoundland and Labrador music, and have a lot of fun playing it. There will be group and private instruction in fiddle, button accordion, tin whistle, mandolin, guitar, and traditional singing. There are also workshops in harp, keyboard, and folk dancing. Vinland Music Camp is a great way to learn some songs & tunes, enjoy the outdoors, and experience a beautiful part of Newfoundland. And it's very cheap - especially for Americans (take note CarolC !) given the present exchange rate.

This year's principal instructors will be Jean Hewson and Christina Smith, Daniel Payne, and Eric West.

For more information, visit our web site or phone (709) 670-3377; e-mail: vinlandmusic@nf.sympatico.ca) Check out the photo gallery from last year - we had a three-day trial run and it was a blast!

By the way, Vinland Music also publishes Newfoundland & Labrador songbooks, including those of Buddy Wasisname and the other Fellers. If you're looking for the lyrics or music for a Nfld. song, we can usually track it down!
