    Approximate Schedule Outline - Subject to change   (pdf complete schedule)

    Here's how we arrange the Eisteddfod program: we contact performers, ask them so make suggestions, then try to work out who will do what and with whom.

    Our overall endeavor is to have some workshops that are participatory (for example, songs with choruses, old-time jamming; some workshops that cover a particular area or type of music (blues, Sacred Harp, Scotland, etc.); and some that are "mini-concerts' so people can get a taste of what individual performers do. There is also a campers' concert, for which anyone can sign up to perform.

    In the past, we've had some great synergy between performers — people who had never met before but found community in their music.

    We hope that everyone who comes will take the chance to play, sing, and learn.
