This Camp is far more hilly than the camp at Boulder Creek, but we do have a bus to help people get around. Faith Petric broke her hip and fell here when she was 95 years old. Her health was never good after that.

This is the workshop leader signup sheet for 2016-17. For 2017-18, click here.

I am sure a good time was had by all....I went to this camp when it was held near Boulder Creek between Santa Cruz and Calistoga south of S.f. at two adjacent camps called Camp Harmon and Camp Campbell. Faith Petric was alive and well and gracing us all with her presence. How inspiring!!
She was central to the San Francisco Folk Music Club Fearless Leader and Patron Saint. Her legacy lives on !! Here is the place this camp i held now....looks inviting!!

Camp is now open. It's very pretty here but chilly - and downright cold at night. Online workshop leading signups are now closed. If you'd like to lead a workshop, sign up on the workshop schedules on the wall in the Welcome Center. I will update the schedules every night after midnight. The latest edition of the schedule is always available here at Mudcat.

Hi there Joe!

If you are still about today ... Can we move the Spirit Short Songs in the Mirror room on 12/31 @ 4:00 to 2:00 instead? Want to sing the songs of Faithy at 4:00! And! I wrote 32 small songs this year and looking forward to singing them on the last day of the year ~ just not at the same time as remembering Faith and the songs she sang!

If need be, I can change it at Camp?! Thanks so much for all you do with this pre-camp and at camp service! Pre-camp hug Joe! See you soon!


Well, I'm still online, but at camp. It was 39 degrees in Santa Rosa, but 32 here at camp tonight. I'm gonna need that hug.
Schedule changed. Not a problem.

Thanks! And by the way, yes I do think you are a wonderful human being. I liked chatting with you on the way down the hill last year. I wonder if I will recognize you this week! We will see!

Guess it's time for me to hit the hay. I pasted a Saturday schedule into the Sunday block. Certainly not the first mistake I've made on these. Thanks for catching it, Jennifer. It's fixed now.

OK, so I'm leaving for camp mid-day Tuesday, but I'll keep online workshop signups open until late Tuesday night. I hope the WiFi is strong at camp this year, so I can make last-minute corrections without having to go into Santa Rosa for an Internet connection. From Wednesday on, please use the yellow stickies on the workshop board at camp. See you there.

I'd like to change the location for Saturday swing sing at 2pm from Ruebens to the Study Center. I prefer the close cozy and "studious" atmosphere. Thanks!

P.S. Regarding your request for "where or when" I'd have to know "what and how." Alas I'm limited to songs I know I can play and sing. This workshop will be more of a group sing a long, or play along with a chance to try solos depending on who, what, where and when :) Thanks for understanding.

Hi, Karen. I made the switch. Maybe I'll get up the gumption to serenade you with "Where or When."

From the Harmony List:

Well, the most interesting ballad for a two-hour workshop would have
to be the Geste of Robin Hood. I know: nobody knows it. YET.

The ballad with the most versions might be the Twa Sisters, or the
Twa Brothers. Cruel Mother is somewhat limiting, as the main real
difference is in the Christian or non-Christian afterlife she'll
have. Lord Thomas and Fair Eleanor has many versions (the Brown
Girl) and Thomas the Rhymer has different verses; we can each choose
our favorites; Hind Horn is equally a long, long story of which we
may sing similar but different slices.

You might get the most surprises/different versions with The Baffled
Knight,of which everyone may have a favorite version. The tedious
Maid Freed from the Gallows is also widely sung, with several tunes
and rhythms. Our Goodman (Seven Nights Drunk) and Sir Lionel (Wild
Boar in the Woods) are known by many and in many versions.

Something like Barbara Allen might get tiresome, since we all know
the same three versions. Does it have to be a ballad? Frankie and
Johnny has many versions and endings. How about a pretty tight
theme, such as crossdressing women or Robbers or Childbirth or
Discourteous knights? Or songs with "cruel" in them?

Looking forward to whatever you pick.

Sadie

Robert Rodriquez is hosting a workshop titled Soldier, Sailor, Tinker, Tailor: songs and stories of work & occupations. It's Friday in the Carpeted Room, noon-2 PM.

Since this is a workshop about occupations and "soldier" is an occupation that many of us have experienced, Robert hopes that somebody will sing John McCutcheon's "Christmas in the Trenches," about the Christmas Truce of 1914.

If this is a song you sing, think about attending Robert's workshop.

Here's the text of the housing assignment letter, which gives lots of useful information about camp:

    Please check your housing arrangements and make sure this is what you requested. All housing is pre-assigned. The camp requires that we tell them where each individual camper will be staying 10 days before camp begins. Changing housing assignments after Dec. 16th or at Camp will not be possible. If you need to change your housing arrangement please contact Margaret and Amelia (campnewharmony@gmail.com or [get number from Joe Offer]) before Dec. 16. All housing units are equipped with bathrooms (including showers) heating and electrical outlets. Your exact room number will be provided to you along with a map of camp when you check-in at registration.

    WHAT'S DIFFERENT THIS YEAR:

    Registration will be in the new Welcome Center. Please park near the front gates and make the short walk if you can. There are 3 parking places in front of the Welcome Center; we'd like to save those for our campers with mobility issues.
    All cabins have new mattresses, and many have new bunks. This eliminates the need for bed boards, and we no longer have them.
    Lower Village has been rebuilt. You will see all new cabins replacing lower village.
    Make sure you bring a flashlight and use it when walking around camp at night!

    If you have questions about the site and its facilities please contact Margaret or Amelia, do not contact the staff at Camp Newman directly as they are busy hosting other camps at this time.

    NO DROP-INS. We're very sorry, but due to Camp Newman rules, we cannot accept anyone who isn't registered by the December 9th deadline. If you have friends who want to come to camp but are not registered, have them join the SFFMC so they get the Folknik registration materials and can attend next year.


    Getting to Camp

    New Harmony is located at Camp Newman 4088 Porter Creek Rd., Santa Rosa, 95404. Click here for map and directions.

    If you drive a car to camp, you will need your vehicle license number at the registration desk! We encourage you to carpool. If you are interested in carpooling or able to offer a ride, send a message to campnewharmony@gmail.com.

    Please plan to arrive between 2pm and midnight on Wednesday December 28, and 8am and Midnight during the rest of Camp, as our location is a gated site. Press the buzzer at the gate and identify yourself, and Newman staff will unlock the gate for you. Once through the metal gate, park nearby and walk to the large new Welcome Center to register.

    Bus Service

    We will again be providing a mini-bus to help our members get up and down the hills, and the bus will start running on Wednesday afternoon. We hope this will make workshop and jamming areas more accessible to those with limited mobility and instruments to carry. The bus will make a continuous circuit of camp, including all workshop areas, the dining hall and the red cabins, several times per hour. Volunteer bus-sherpas will be available to assist you with loading and unloading instruments.

    To ensure that the bus can safely negotiate the camp's narrow roads and tight curves, we cannot allow anyone to drive personal cars around camp during the hours of bus operation (except for arrival at & departure from camp). Please help make this a success by parking only in the designated areas and do not block the bus route.

    PLEASE DONATE! As was expected, given the state of the economy, campership requests were way up this year, and campership donations were way down - if you can afford to make a campership donation, please do so - no amount is too small. Please make your check payable to SFFMC and write "campership donation" in the memo section. You can send donations to:
    Ellen Eagan
    Camp Harmony Treasurer
    (ask Joe for address)
    San Bruno, CA 94066

    We will also be giving you the opportunity to donate at Camp, so please bring your checkbook! All (labeled) donations are tax deductible. (If you donate cash, please attach a note with your name and address so that a receipt can be mailed to you.)

    What to Bring to Camp


    BRING: Bedding, towels, bathrobe (bathrooms are co-ed unless you are in a single-sex cabin) clothes for different kinds of weather (hat and rain gear, warm coat, umbrella), earplugs, songs, musical instruments and books, soft sole dance shoes for indoor use only, a coffee/drink mug for each attendee, a flashlight and extra batteries. If you like to sip beverages during workshops, please bring your own traveler's mug. Open-mouthed containers will not be allowed in one of the workshop areas. Optional: dress up clothes and/or table decorations for New Years Eve, decorations for your cabin - no nails, tacks, staples or tape.

    A note on bedding: the site provides NO bedding, towels or toiletries. Most beds at Camp are twin-sized camp bunk or single twin beds (no one will need to sleep on a top bunk unless they want to). The camp has put new mattresses throughout camp, so our stay should be much more comfortable!

    DO NOT BRING: radios, TV's, CD players, or beeping things. NO smoking, candles or open flames of any kind are permitted in cabins or bathrooms - these are the Camp Newman rules, and they own the site! Electrical appliances can be used in all units. ABSOLUTELY NO PETS.

    Camp Newman is a huge facility with a responsive maintenance crew - occasionally a cabin heater is broken and cannot be repaired until after camp. If you are concerned about cabin heating at camp, we encourage you to bring extra blankets and/or a labeled space heater with you to camp.

    If you haven't already, consider getting a flu shot to help insure a healthy Camp.

    Dietary Needs and Food Allergies

    Camp Newman staff will be preparing all of our meals at New Harmony. They are not able to cater to any special diets. However, there is a tiny separate kitchen located in the Welcome Center (immediately across from the dining hall) that a few campers with legitimate special needs may use. Out of consideration for the occupants of the Welcome Center, we must limit the use of this kitchen to a very small number of people with special permission, and to specific hours of the day. If you wish to cook or store food in this facility, you must make advance arrangements with Margaret or Amelia.

    Camp Life

    We invite you to participate in a wide variety of activities and to try new experiences. You can sing along on the choruses or enjoy listening to the jam sessions even if you don't think you're a musician. If you've never danced before, we welcome you to give it a try. We encourage everyone to share in the spirit of Harmony by welcoming beginners.

    There are approximately 7 workshop spaces in addition to arts and crafts spaces so there will be plenty of opportunity for workshops and jamming. Some workshops will be pre-scheduled which helps to insure lots to do. Workshops for beginners of all kinds are always appreciated. Please consider leading one! To pre-arrange a workshop before Camp, go to http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=160097.

    In case of emergency: If the party you are trying to reach at camp does not have cell phone coverage, then the next best way to reach someone during camp is to call Amelia's cell phone and leave a message (831-331-3705). She will check messages daily and relay any urgent messages ASAP. The Camp has wireless in some areas, and many cell phones work at Camp Newman - but in the spirit of Harmony we encourage you to leave them off while not in use.

    This is a volunteer-run Camp and its smooth operation depends on your participation through chores. Those with strong backs and legs are encouraged to come to camp early (between 11am and 2pm on Wed. Dec. 28th) to help with camp set-up, or plan on staying for an extra hour or two at the end of camp to help with take down. Please email campnewharmony@gmail.com by Monday Dec. 26 if you plan to come early so we know to let you in.

    If You Leave Camp Early

    If you must leave Camp early, please "check out" at the Registration Table. At the end of New Harmony we must give an accurate accounting to the Newman staff for all used and unused camper-days, so it is important to let us know that you (and your family) are no longer at Camp.

    If there is no one at the Reg. Table when you leave, please leave a note there. Be sure to state in the note who is leaving and when you left Camp.

    Cancellations and Refunds

    Cancellations can be made by emailing Margaret and Amelia at campnewharmony@gmail.com or calling 831-331-3705 (before 9pm please). If you phone, you must follow up with a written email for a refund All written requests for refunds must be sent by 1-17-17. IMPORTANT: PLEASE USE THE WORDS "HARMONY CANCELLATION" IN THE SUBJECT LINE.

    Cancellations made on or before Dec. 9 will receive a full refund.
    Cancellations made Dec. 10 thru Dec. 16 will receive a 75% refund.
    Cancellations made Dec. 17 thru Dec. 27th will receive a 50% refund.
    If you cancel after Dec. 27th, no refund will be given.
    No refund will be given to those who did not cancel and did not attend
    Camp ("no-shows"). Exceptions may be made for hardship cases.

In reply to Karen's remark "Regarding the yellow room.fyi I think we called it B flat if that is the room behind study center."

Karen - Yellow Room 22 is not the same as B flat (which was my favorite space for a workshop or a jam - I was disappointed when it was not available last year)

To get to Yellow Room 22, start walking up the hill from the dance hall towards Red Cabins - very quickly you come to a row of 3-4 rooms on the right (remember where Charlie & Susan's late night soirees used to happen in the furthest room?) Yellow Room 22 is the first room in that row closest to the dance hall. The entrance is perpendicular to the rest of the building and faces the dance hall. My recollection is that it was pretty bare room - I think we had to bring in chairs ourselves. There was a large TV on a stand. I think there was some sort of structural element (partial wall or a pillar) in the middle of the room that made it unsuitable for a large gathering if you wanted to be able to see everyone - you could have maybe 8-10 people on one side or the other of that wall. I think there was one of those fake stove/heaters like in cabin 6 that was adequate (barely) for heating the room (but still better than the myriad of little space heaters in the journalism room or the study center), but I could be misremembering.

Hi Joe,
Reading through some of the other messages here, I realized that you had a 2-workshop limit (never knew that before).

Therefore, could you please combine the frame-drum and the NA flute workshops I requested into one 2-hour workshop?

Frame Drums & NA Flutes: First, we'll learn to play expressive, meditational rhythms--alone or ensemble. Then we'll add the breath of life via NA flutes (bring A-minor or D-minor flutes) to create music-in-the-moment. Some loaners available.


Hi, Kathryn. The limit is a very loose one. If you're using smaller workshop spaces, there's no need for restriction - but I can't give 6 hours in Ruben's House or the Carpeted Room to one person.
I'll put you in the Mirrored Room daily at 3 PM.
I'm looking forward to seeing you again - it's been a while.
-Joe-

Hi Joe,

I would like to give the following workshops:

Ukulele Kindergarten: From the Very Beginning. Some loaners available.

Frame Drums: Expressive, meditational drumming--alone and together. Some loaners available, or bring your own.

Some time after the drum w/s, we can have

NA Flutes (Plus Drums): Add the rhythm of your breath to the rhythm of your heart. Bring A-minor or D-minor flutes (any octave)--some loaners available.

If Sadie is amenable, I would be willing to co-facilitate her "Banging Things" w/s--the "technical" term is "Found Objects"--Indicate that folks can be collecting objects until the w/s, or bring instruments that can be played in alternative ways.

I would prefer for these to be in either the Front Room or the Mirrored Room, any time from noon until about 4, perhaps spread out about one per day (I'll be there the whole time), except the drum and flute classes could be in tandem.

Thank you for listing the descriptions of the spaces--I couldn't even find them on the map!

Joe you did a great job of giving lots of time for the Swing/Band Practice. Is it possible to have 5:00 to 6:00 at the Dance Hall for a three hour slot for Swing/Band practice. I don't want to be greedy but may need the time. Also wanted to make Jim Tepperman's Beatles Sing Along if possible. Last year I accompanied Peter and Jim on bass for the workshop. Your consideration is appreciated.
Cris Johnson

Hi, Cris - I'll be glad to put you where you want to be, but ya gotta specify. Take another look at the schedule and see what you want to do. Maybe get Karen or Deborah run the swing singer practice while you're doing Beatles?

Can I offer a swing song sing along on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Rubens. Lyrics will be provided. Instrumentalists and singers are welcome.

Regarding the yellow room.fyi I think we called it B flat if that is the room behind study center. It's a cozy room and I think it has its own bathroom. There are beds in it. I think it holds about a dozen.

You betcha, Karen. Hope I can make it. Might you think of bringing lyrics for "Where or When"? I'd like to try that one.

Refresh. Still waiting to hear from Monika and Roger about their "Spoons" and "How to Play Anything" workshops.
Gee, I wish I could learn how to be one of those people who can play most any instrument passably well. I've known some, and they amaze me. One was a college roommate of mine.

Is Debbie McClatchy doing her banjo/OT workshops this year? Sure enjoy her music and it guarantees making it worth the time and money to get there.


Gee, thanks for asking. It gave me an excuse to call Debby, which I should do more often anyhow. She lives just down the pike from me, but I don't see her very often since my wife retired and is no longer her chiropractor. She used to do little concerts here for my mother-in-law before she got her chiropractic treatments. My mother-in-law never remembered her name - she was "that nice young woman who plays the banjo."
She says that every morning from 10-noon, she will be leading a completely-accessible medium-speed old-time jam in the screened room, where Debby is happy to arrange times for one-on-one work for later.
Have fun!

Hey, Joe. I would like to do a two-hour Ballad workshop with Casey Casebeer, in Rubens or the carpeted room. We'll put a special title and theme together when she gets back. Maybe "Heroes and Outlaws."

I'd also like an hour for "Songs with songs in them" and one for "Forbidden songs." Preferably in Rubens or the carpeted room, and please not across from any other ballad workshops or meals.

Thank you kindly!

If I were permitted one more idea, I would like an hour somewhere for a workshop for "Sounds improv, Hitting things, and Mouth music." I wouldn't have to lead it.

Blessed be,
Sadie


2-hour Ballad workshop, Casey & Sadie - Ruben's Thursday 3-5 Songs with Songs in Them - Ruben's Friday 4-5 Forbidden Songs - Carpeted Room Saturday 3-4
