WUMB- Winter Weekend
Guitar, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, singer/songwriter

WUMB will host the first ever SAMW Winter Music Weekend on February 15-17, 2013, (Presidents Day Weekend), in Groton Massachusetts. This will be a "hands-on" New England acoustic music retreat. Come for camaraderie and classes, concerts and great guided and freestyle jams with world-class players and teachers, including Lui Collins, Susie Burke, David Surrette, Lorraine and Bennett Hammond, and John Doerschuk.

Lodging and six meals are included. Registration will open at 4:00 pm on Friday afternoon. Dinner is at 6:00 pm. We're due to leave the campus Sunday by 3:00 pm. Groton is about an hour northwest of downtown Boston. The camp is in a beautifully wooded area, and the facilities are comfortable. Most rooms are doubles. The bathrooms are shared. The food is hearty and the desserts are legendary. Walking between buildings is on fairly level ground, give or take possible snow banks! Oh-and there are several working fireplaces. Space is limited and we encourage you to sign up soon.

Cost for the full weekend is $375 per person.
Cost to WUMB members is $350 per person.
You may reserve your space now with a deposit of $50.
The balance is due no later than December 30,2012.
Plan to bring your own bedding. The camp will supply a pillow and blanket for an additional $15 per person, and advanced notice is required for those who wish to add bedding to their reservation.

To make your reservation, please email Patty Domeniconi directly at patty.domeniconi@umb.edu or give her a call at 617-287-6915.
