Join us for the 6th annual Falling Waters Music Camp on January 12 - 14, 2018 - a fun and inspiring weekend of instruction, jamming and performance located at the beautiful La Tourelle resort in Ithaca, NY.  Classes and performances will be led by some great instructor-performers including Claire Lynch, Bryan McDowell and Mark Schatz of the Claire Lynch Band, Dylan Foley, Judy Hyman, Rosie Newton, Wes Corbett, Adam Hurt, Matt Flinner, Quinn Bachand, Dave Davies, Tim Ball, Paul Fairbanks, and Rick Manning with others to be announced. Instruction will be offered on fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, singing and band at advanced beginner, intermediate and advanced levels in a variety of styles that include Irish, old-time, bluegrass, swing, contradance, and folk.  Jamming is a fun and important part of the weekend – some impromptu throughout the day and night with many structured jam sessions to cater to your stylistic interest and experience level.

The weekend will begin on Friday afternoon at 1 pm with two classes followed by a happy hour opening lobby reception, cash bar and jam in the La Tourelle Lobby from 5pm to 6:00pm.  Dinner will be offered during the happy hour.  Friday evening at 7:30 pm we will host the first of two faculty concerts during the weekend. This Friday night show will introduce campers to the faculty and will be open to both campers and the public.   Jamming will follow the concert throughout the hotel, late into the night.

Four 75 minute classes will be held on Saturday during the day and formal and informal jam sessions will be held during and in between the classes.  La Tourelle will be offering breakfast, lunch and dinner and hosting a Saturday evening Lobby reception & jam with a cash bar, following by the popular Saturday Night camp faculty concert (open to the public) and, again, jamming late into the night evening.  Sunday morning there will be two classes with the weekend coming to a close at 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
