Richard Thompson’s Frets & Refrains
Music Masters Camps At Full Moon Resort
Big Indian, NY, USA
Wow! Our third year of Frets and Refrains! This has been such a great success, and I’m so proud of what we have achieved so far, that I would not hesitate to recommend this camp to anyone interested in furthering their skills in acoustic guitar, songwriting, and singing. We have the best teachers! The most idyllic location! The best food! What is there not to love?
We welcome to our teaching staff this year the wonderful Darden Smith, not only a fine singer/songwriter, but also a very experienced teacher in many different situations.
Returning will be Shawn Colvin, Martin Simpson, Sloan Wainwright, Happy Traum, Simon Tassano, Bobby Eichorn, Jack Thompson and Zak Hobbs. For fuller information on class content, please see the Itinerary/Course descriptions page.
I do hope we’ll see you at the Full Moon Resort,
