This one is in Taos and features Dustin Welch and Eliza Gilkyson

Come join Kevin Welch, Dustin Welch and Eliza Gilkyson for their third Annual Songwriter’s Camp in the magic mountain town of Taos, New Mexico July 3-6, 2014.

Designed to inspire writers of all levels to break out of the mundane and into a flow of creative craftsmanship, this course will emphasize the organic nature of songwriting, focusing on the artistic and exploratory side of the process. Participants will get the chance to work through problems or blocks, gain awareness of the process, and get personalized feedback from the pros.
Participants will spend the days writing and composing together with direct hands-on input from Kevin, Eliza and Dustin. The group will gather for late night jam sessions and chatting about the day’s accomplishments and experiences, and the workshop will culminate in a live house concert.
The workshop sessions will be held at Casa de Musica, Eliza’s beautiful historic adobe home in Arroyo Seco, just a few miles north of the Town of Taos, just a 4 minute drive (or short bike ride) to the village where there are a variety of restaurants (healthy vegan to full menu options), coffeeshops, nightlife, lodging, and fun shopping.

The town of Taos with all amenities, including a large health food store, is 15 minutes away. Taos Pueblo, home of the Tiwa Pueblo Nation, welcomes visitors all summer (http://taos.org/art/historic-landmarks?/item/1/Taos-Pueblo).
The Arroyo Seco lodging ranges from reasonable youth hostel accommodations (http://www.snowmansion.com/Taos-Lodging.html), including group “room shares” or small rustic bungalows or camping with full bath privileges and  food service, to fancy b and b’s (http://www.taos-cottonwood.com/index.html), vacation rental homes (http://www.taosvacationhomes.com/list_propertiesxbr.php?location=Arroyo+Seco) or Homeaway rental options, all within a few minutes of Casa de Musica. We can make recommendations for you personally if you need them.
Casa de Musica has plenty of space for us to spread out and write in separate groups and come together in the comfortable living room for our group sessions. We can have outdoor sessions on the patio if the day is too irresistible.  A trailhead starts across the road for an easy nature stroll, or get up early and hike a mountain trail just 10 minutes drive from the village. We will provide basic continental style breakfast and sandwich platter luncheons, and you’re on your own for dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants in Taos or Arroyo Seco.
With the glorious Taos Mountain standing guard over us, the charming historic village nearby, and the welcoming embrace of Casa de Musica, the inspiration is everywhere for your writing experience, and Kevin, Dustin and Eliza are committed to helping you write your best tunes ever!
$1000 + tax per person, includes continental breakfast and lunch sandwich spread, dinner and lodging not included.
