Hello, everybody. San Francisco's Camp Harmony will be on Zoom this year, starting on Thursday, December 31 and running for four days. We will have three workshop periods per day, three sessions per period - so 9 sessions per day and a concert in the evening. Robert Rodriquez was the first to request workshops:
  • Songs and Stories about Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral
  • Heroes and Villains / Saints and Sinners
  • Celebrating Holidays: Seasonal and Ritual

Dick Holdstock hopes to do a workshop on his long-awaited book.

There's a discrepancy between the dates you posted here and the dates on the San Francisco Folk Music Club webpage (https://www.sffmc.org/), which lists the dates as Dec. 29 through 31.

Is it a midweek event or a weekend celebration?

Hi, Charlie - maybe I jumped the gun, but I thought it had been officially decided to move the camp to Dec 31 and January 1, 2, and 3. There will be a camp committee meeting October 18, and I'll get confirmation then.

Well, whatever the case, I quit the camp committee tonight. Too dysfunctional for me, and too dominated by an elite "in crowd" who want to micromanage everything. If you have any questions about Camp Harmony, contact the camp committee chair Charlie Fenton. You can find him through the San Francisco Folk Music Club, sffmc.org.

I'm done.

The San Francisco Folk Music Club's annual New Years retreat, Camp Harmony, will be held via Zoom this year, and it is free to all! This year only, you don't even have to be a member of the club to attend, but you must register by December 29.

As usual, Camp Harmony will include dozens of workshops and jams, evening concerts and dances, plenty of opportunity to visit with friends old and new and a gala Midnight celebration New years Eve. Camp will run from Thursday evening December 31 through Sunday afternoon January 3.

The Schedule is a work in progress. Find the latest update here: https://tinyurl.com/HarmonySched.

And Wendy Silk of Davis CA has a very nice song about Camp Harmony:

Camp Harmony LíChaim
(With appreciation to Lisa and Faith Wendy Silk)

Verse
Mushroom peeking up under a pine
Fiddle plays sweet and high
Dancers do-si-do aní skip down the line
Coulda woulda shoulda goóbye bye

Big coast live oak out on the ridge
Crazy nine chords in play
Creek is makin music right under this bridge
And I got no workótoday
Woodpecker peckin on an old oak tree
Banjoís pickin next door
Two folks singin close harmony
And I donít havta go to the Ė store
Chorus
Whether or not the sunís gonna shine
Now Iím smiling and feelin fine
Cause I got rhyme
And I got time
And I gotóchaim (life)
CODA
And I got ti-i-i-i-i-ime.
CAMP HARMONY LíCHAIM
