Dear friends,

I'm very excited to be able to invite you once again to our Frets and Refrains camp, in the beautiful Catskill Mountains. Last year's camp was a great success at every level, and I know we have many of you returning this year. For those of you thinking of coming for the first time, this is a songwriting and acoustic guitar camp for all levels, and if you are a guitarist, songwriter or singer, we will offer ways to enhance, rethink and improve your playing and performing skills. Classes are in large 'seminar' groups and in smaller circles, there are jam sessions, open mic nights, hiking, swimming, excellent accommodation, and delicious food! We really think this is about as good as it gets as a learning and life-enriching event.

We are delighted to welcome back all of our faculty and staff from last year - Teddy Thompson, Martin Simpson, Sloan Wainwright, Happy Traum, Simon Tassano, Bobby Eichorn, Jack Thompson and Zak Hobbs. In addition we welcome Shawn Colvin as a teacher of songwriting! We are thrilled to have such an accomplished and beloved artist on the faculty.

Hoping to see you there,

Best wishes,

Richard Thompson
