In the words of Robert Rodriquez:
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Come one, come all. Believe it or not, there are still spaces left for the 2017 version of TRADMAD WEEK at Pinewoods Camp, located in the lush woodlands of Massachusetts between Plymouth and Bourne, adjacent to Cape Cod and all it has to offer. This is the third year that TRADMAD WEEK has taken place, and what a week this year will be. The camp surroundings are wonderful, the food is good, and if traditional music, song and dance are ones cup of tea, then the doctor could not have ordered better. Imagine a week where the diversity of traditional music will run the gamut from Cajun to Balkan; from Celtic to Sephardic; from Appalachian to Scandinavian, and so much more in between. And what a staff, including the likes of Brian Peters, Jeff Davis, Joy Bennet, Heather Wood, Ian Russell, John Roberts, Margaret Bennet, Wild Asparagus, Larry Hanks and Ian McGregor, just to mention a few. There will be workshops galore, dance activities from morning to night, musical jams, ballad swaps from one end of the camp to the other, and even a workshop or two on storytelling, no brag just fact. So much will be happening that the only complaint one can come up with is, "There is just too much to do"! Now if yours truly sounds too enthusiastic about this week, it is only because the two previous years were great, but this one may be the best yet! Like I said in the beginning, there are still spaces left, but I earnestly hope that what I have written will correct this as quickly as possible. Or to put it another way, TRADMAD WEEK 2017, RIDE ON !!!!!!!!
