Americana Song Academy 2019

Tuesday, September 3, 2019, 8:00 AM

The Americana Song Academy inspires people to believe in their creativity and helps develop a community that supports that pursuit. Select artists performing at the Sisters Folk Festival arrive 4 days early to teach all aspects of music, songwriting, performance and singing. Participants deeply engage and nurture their music, songs, and aspirations. Private concerts, open mics and mentor sessions are all part of the experience. The musical alchemy of the festival artists from Song Camp helps inspire collaborations and exceptional performances at the festival each year. Campers participate in workshops, communal meals and activities at Camp Caldera, a stunning arts retreat located on the edge of Blue Lake, high in the Cascade mountains. With an extraordinary caterer, a beautiful and powerful location, and a unique, intimate experience, the event continues to be highly anticipated and sells out each year. Refund Policy: Refunds can be REQUESTED up to 7 days before Song Camp begins. If we are able to fill your space with someone from the wait list, we will refund your registration less a $25 processing fee. There are no refunds after 5 pm on Tuesday, August 27.  FAQs: 1.

How do I know where I am staying if I don’t have a room in Tamarack Hall?Unless you have booked a room in Tamarack Hall, there are 22 tipis available, as well as tent camping.
