12th Annual

Breakin' Up Winter

(Gone, but not forgotten. Stay tuned for 2008!)

We hope you were this us March 2-4 for our fantastic annual music retreat at Cedars of Lebanon State Park outside Nashville, Tennessee, a gathering of old-time music lovers from around the country who came to learn, jam, dance, sing, hike, eat, and just sit round talking about the music we all love.

  • Roots of Old-Time Music presentations by George Gruhn, Kerry Blech, and Joyce Cauthen.
  • Jams with guest performers
  • Old-time recording demonstration
  • Slow jams
  • Contra dance
  • Workshop on playing for contra dances
  • John Hatton's immense collection of hard-to-find old-time music CDs
  • Jamming, jamming, and more jamming
  • And great food from our caterer, The Mad Platter, returning for an encore after providing some great grub last year. (It's not your ordinary grub, for sure.)
