Welcome to Winter Village Music, the host of Falling Waters Music Camp, Winter Village Music Camp, Paris Texas (band) and the occasional concert and music event. Next year (2020) we are making a significant change to our January offerings, adding a second music camp, the Winter Village Music Camp, focusing on bluegrass, swing, songwriting, singing, and Canadian fiddle music. Falling Waters Music Camp will now focus on old-time and Irish music, along with songwriting and singing.

Winter Village Music hosts a variety of acoustic music events at La Tourelle, a beautiful 55 room inn located in Ithaca, New York.  Our first event was the Winter Village Bluegrass Festival held in 2011 and featuring the Claire Lynch Band.  Since that time we have shifted our focus to hosting music camps that feature great teacher-performers offering instruction at all levels and some amazing evening concerts.

Winter Village Music was founded by Rick Manning.  Rick's partner in Winter Village Music is Scott Wiggins, whose family owns and operates La Tourelle and August Moon Spa on South Hill in Ithaca.  Both Rick and Scott are musicians, music lovers, and active in the Ithaca community.  Together they founded the Friends of Stewart Park and are working to revitalize Ithaca's favorite lakefront historic park, Rick as Executive Director and Scott as Past Board Chairman. 

Thanks for visiting Winter Village Music and we hope to see you at one our upcoming music events.
