|Musicians' Day ||Event date: November 21st, 2014 - November 23rd, 2014|
|Hosted by Crown Province of Ostgardr - Peekskill, NY||Event Last Modified: January 8th, 2014|
|The fourth almost-annual Musicians' Day will be in the mold of the previous three (see, for example, http://ostgardr.org/events/md2012 ).|
The Crown Province of Østgarðr invites Both All And Some to a day of classes on all aspects of medieval and Renaissance polyphonic music. Bring your voice, your recorders, shawms, dulcians, cornetti, and sackbuts (or trombones pretending to be sackbuts), your viols, vielles, violins, and rebecs, your harps, citoles, lutes, gitterns, and psalteries, ... you get the idea.
The site, Blue Mountain Trail Lodge, has room to sleep about thirty people, so we plan to start classes after breakfast Saturday morning, with probably some pickup jam sessions well into the evening, since bed is only a few yards away. After Sunday breakfast, there may be time for another jam session before bidding farewell to musical friends old and new and heading home.
Site Opens: 7:00 PM Friday
Site Closes: 12:00 PM Sunday
