Music Masters Camps, Levon Helm Studio and THE WEIGHT BAND are excited to present Camp Cripple Creek at Full Moon Resort from Monday, August 19 to Friday, August 23, 2019.
Based out of nearby Woodstock, New York, the Band became one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world. Camp Cripple Creek feature concerts, performances, interactive workshops, teaching clinics focused on both music and history, talks from industry professionals who were close at hand… accompanied by plentiful on-stage jamming with the attendees, open jam rooms with backline equipment provided, open mics and song-circles around the campfires. So, if you’re a musician, bring your instrument… if you’re simply a lover of this amazing music, bring your good spirit. We plan to have a truckload of Very Big Fun at this once-in-a-lifetime vacation-like music experience!
The camp is hosted by the esteemed Woodstock-based touring group, “THE WEIGHT BAND” the players in which represent a direct lineage to the source of this powerful music. Songs that have reverberated across history for decades continue to speak to millions of us. And THE WEIGHT BAND, featuring Jim Weider from The Band, Brian Mitchell of the Levon Helm Band ,and Albert Rogers who has shared the stage with Levon Helm and Garth Hudson remains a vehicle through which we can continue to share those stories and dance to those back beats. Camp Cripple Creek Special Guests include Paul Barrere, Fred Tackett, and Kenny Gradney of Little Feat.
