Gaelic Storm is excited to announce their very first Rag and Bone Workshop; four days of camping, classes, music and stories in the beautiful Catskills under the expert tutelage of camp counselors and instructors, Gaelic Storm! From the Celtic influences and individual instruments that make up their music to the songwriting, storytelling, and the business of marketing, the band invites all attendees to get an in-depth and personal look into all things Gaelic Storm.
The Rag and Bone Workshop will take place July 29 – August 2 at the Full Moon Resort located in the Catskill Mountains in Big Indian, New York. Registration begins Friday March 15. The band would like to invite musicians of all ages and skill levels interested in playing, jamming, learning from and writing with Gaelic Storm. Or, if you’re simply a music lover who would enjoy hanging out with the band and hearing their songs and stories in an intimate and beautiful setting, the band invites you to join as well.
Gaelic Storm’s live shows have always had the familiar communal and interactive feel of a neighborhood pub. The Rag and Bone Workshop takes that experience to the most personal level as each individual band member will teach group classes in their respective expertise – acoustic guitar, fiddle/violin, pipes and whistle, and percussion/drum classes (including bodhran and spoons), as well as songwriting classes. (Private lessons will also be available.) Attendees of the songwriting class will write with the band and the performance on the final evening will feature the campers as the headliners performing their songs penned at the workshop with Gaelic Storm as the “house band.”
The band will also perform two official shows – a full band set and their “Old Songs and Old Stories” storyteller set. And, in the spirit of celebration, there will be at least one formal whiskey tasting (for those who are of age), and jam sessions with band members each night…sometimes into the morning!
Full Moon Resort is located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains. Comfortable and private indoor accommodations are available as well as beautiful outdoor camping with amenities. Each attendee will be provided three gourmet meals per day. The camp also offers a beautiful landscape for hiking in forests and meadows, an Olympic-size spring fed swimming pool, a café, full service bar, a library and a billiard room as well as performances spaces and meeting areas used for the activities.
Whether you’re a fan of Celtic music or a fan looking for an intimate get-away with the band, we hope to provide an unforgettable experience at Gaelic Storm’s Rag and Bone Workshop.
Participants must bring their own instruments. No instruments will be provided.
