Welcome to the 5th year of this great camp situated in the magnificent Kosciuszko National Park. The dates are Friday 17 to Wednesday 22 January 2020.  Come and enjoy 4 days and 5 nights of workshops, sessions and great company.

Your hosts are musicians Dave O’Neill & Jo Cresswell with 2nd tutor Kate Burke.

Two classes will be offered for multi-instruments based on learning tunes. One class will be for people who feel they are slower at picking up tunes by ear.  The alternate class will be for people who learn by ear quickly.  An accompaniment option will also be offered.  Your tutors for both classes will be Dave O’Neill and Kate Burke who will teach one session a day with each class group.  The music at camp will focus on Irish with meanderings into French Canadian, Cape Breton and Scottish tunes.

We will be staying at The Sundeck situated in stunning country at Perisher Valley. It is a 1.5 hour drive from Cooma or 2.5 hour drive from Canberra.

Dave and Jo also run an annual Music & Walking trip and also an annual Singing & Walking trip to France.  For details see:    www.francewalks.com

  1. Hi Sharon, In the multi instrument class you can bring any instrument (well maybe not bagpipes…. ) as long as you are used to playing tunes. Jeremy and Dave have specific experience in stringed instruments so can give you specific help on strings. ciao, jo

  2. Hi Dave & Jo, is this more suited for advanced level players, or it it OK for intermediate level as well.

  3. Hi, We’re really targetting it at intermediate players though that is fairly broad from ‘slow intermediate to advanced intermediate’ if you get my drift. The ‘slow session’ each day will add an additional place for less competent players to get nourished and the evening sessions will pick up the pace for the more competent players. ciao, jo

  6. Hi folks,

    Are you still taking bookings? I know that the due date for payment was the end of October, but I just thought I’d check if it’s still possible to get involved. Thanks. – Toby.
