Title: Port Townsend 2019
Post by: Johnm on November 15, 2018, 10:10:08 AM
Hi all,
I will be on the faculty at Port Townsend at the summer session in 2019 after a number of years not teaching there.  As a result of teaching at Port Townsend, I will not be at Euro Blues Week in 2019.  I hope to see some old friends at Port Townsend, as well as meeting new ones and meeting many of the teaching staff for the first time.
All best,
Johnm

I will also be on the faculty -- I'll be teaching blues fiddle (Coleman Aiken will also teach blues fiddle) and I'm also going to be doing a band lab class with Jim Kweskin!  We co-taught at another camp last year and it was great fun.

Also excited to see that Cedric Watson will be teaching blues accordion.  He is a brilliant musician, a great Creole fiddler as well as a wonderful accordion player.

Tell your fiddling friends to sign up, this is going to be an extra-good year for fiddles at Blues Week!

I'm looking forward it.  If you haven't attended, it's a lot of fun with like minded folks, great musicians and teachers.  Hope to see some fellow Weenies there.

Same!  You'll recognize me; look for an old guy with a guitar...

You'll need to narrow it down. How about "...wearing a red carnation" :)

I really enjoyed seeing familiar old folks - and a plethora of young folks - with guitars and associated stringed instruments at PT this year!  It was a great time on all fronts - even arising early for the timely soul-searching course made sense. 

As usual, I had to depart early, but still got to stay for ribs - worth it!

2019 was Jerron's last year as Artistic Director; this is a note about our 2020 AD:

Next year at PT promises to be pretty cool, and I hope to see several of y'all there then!
