The Folk Project Acoustic Getaway is a fun-packed and intimate music weekend, where 150 musicians and music lovers share concerts, workshops and jam sessions with nationally renowned acoustic performers. Three concerts, over 40 workshops, jam sessions, food, lodging and all activities cost only about $200. It will be held on Columbus Weekend, October 6-8, 2017, Friday through Sunday at a Y camp near Hackettstown, NJ.
Acoustic Guitar Magazine rated The Getaway as one of their Top 50 Roadside Attractions in the U.S.A. If you ever wanted to listen to, talk with, learn from, and see up close and personal some of the great musicians you’ve seen on stage, this is your chance.
Featured performers include blues and ragtime guitar legend and storyteller extraordinaire Roy Book Binder, folk rock power duo and purveyors of ukulele love Pete and Maura Kennedy, the explosive take-no-prisoners Celtic band Burning Bridget Cleary, the exquisite guitar and mind-blowing fiddle team of Harvey Reid & Joyce Andersen, the elegant backwoods harmonies of the downhome Honey Dewdrops, the joyful sing-along fun of choirmaster and song leader Nick Page, the superb vocals and songwriting of Project favorite Chrissy Roberts, and the ultimate purveyor of class and sass with a 20’s and 30’s sensibility Betsy Rose & The Chicago Fire.
