The location is just outside of Port Jervis, NY, under two hours from NYC.

How unfortunate that this would be planned for the same weekend as Eisteddfod 2006, a festival of traditional folksongs in NYC. Perhaps this would draw from a somewhat different sector of the folk crowd, but still....

It was the only weekend that the camp had open. I lost a banjo presenter because of a conflict with the NYC event. There's another smaller (one-day) event on Long Island. Another qualified banjo picker raised his hand.

But in a tri-state area, there has to be room for everyone.

The guy heading up the songwriter session is John Taylor. That should bring in people.

I just went over to their website, the Camp Greenkill event is 180 degrees different. They're a concert venue (and a very good offering too). Ours is not. Camp Greenkill is for the pickers and singers themselves.

It's a place to come and jam, share, learn, enjoy. It is 100% particapatory.

Food is good. If you come, you can request vegitarian, special diet (within limits). It's there, you don't have to cook it, or wash the dishes, or go anyplace.

This is a park-your-car Friday, don't touch it until Sunday afternoon event.

If it works out, it will be people jamming, swapping music, hanging out, there's trails, lakes (hey, it's a camp).

Coming?

Weather permitting...
For example, the Gospel Sing on Sunday will take place with the mountains behind you and an autumn lake in front.

Need a brochure?

Somewhat off-topic, I acknowledge, but does anyone know if the summer Girl Scout camp, Camp Mogisca, is still there, near Port Jervis? I was a Camp Counsellor there in 1972.
The Girl Scouts came from Morristown, NJ. I came from England. It was a good summer.
These days I go to Folk festivals all summer.

Not sure. There office is closed by now. Perhaps someone there will answer tomorrow. I'm five or six counties away. Nice place. They run kids things all year and special events like yoga weekends, art weekends, pioneering, they even have weddings up there too.
   This is the first Folk Music event. It really a non-concert. We want everyone to come, pick, and take part. Their brochure says, "You're the star."

About fifty people have signed up making for a pleasntly diverse group of folk musicians. A lot of guitars and a few banjos. Wish we had a fiddler to two. But there's still a month before the event.

I need to put together a list of gospel songs for the session on Sunday morning after breakfast during the Folk Music Weekend.

I'm thinking of
Keep on the Sunny Side
Circle Be Unbroken
Lone Pilgrim (personal favorite)
Amazing Grace (which I'm bored with)
   Then I run out of gas, help!

I need seven of eight tunes, which I'll put lyrics and chords to. They should be easy to sing and probably better know, not too religious stuff. The level of people attending will be all over the map.
