Summer Acoustic Music Week (SAMW)
July 13 - July 19, 2014
Calling All Acoustic Music Lovers, Novice to Professional
Join us for the 19th annual WUMB Summer Acoustic Music Week (SAMW). It's a retreat and renewal and a summer music vacation. But most of all, it's a chance to work on and play your music with some of the best folk musicians and teachers in the country.
Sponsored by WUMB Radio in Boston, Massachusetts, SAMW offers an exuberant week of intensive instruction, jamming, workshops, dancing and musical collaboration with instructors attuned to the needs of each student. Class topics include Flatpicking and Fingerstyle Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo, Mandolin, Voice, Blues Styles, and Songwriting, as well as the opportunity to learn sound reinforcement skills. Dancing will also be a playful component of the program to celebrate the spirit of the community. Geneva Point offers a beautiful view of the lake and the Ossipee Mountains: a tranquil setting in which to pursue your musical studies and recreational interests.
