"Railroad Earth is proud to present their first ever sleep-away camp that’s not just for kids! Camp Railroad is a four day summer music camp experience that will be held in the heart of the Catskill Mountains at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY.
Campers and Hobos will join us at Camp Railroad from June 10-14, 2013, along with a total of up to 150 other musicians, music-lovers and folks who just want to be closer to the inner workings of what makes Railroad Earth and their music keep rolling down the tracks.
Starting at 3pm on June 10th, until 11am on June 14th, you and your fellow Campers will join in with the band members, crew and management for an assortment of fascinating workshops, band and individual performances, interactive jam sessions with band members, panel discussions and other activities that’ll bring you closer and give you insight into how everything works, both musically and otherwise, in the world of Railroad Earth.
Camp Railroad is designed to be for aspiring musicians of all skills levels and ages who want to get a closer look at how the band members approach their music and their instruments. But you don’t have to be a musician to be part of it. It’s also for passionate music lovers who just want to join us, as well as folks interested in sound, lighting or management. At Camp Railroad we want to give you a chance to connect with the band members like never before – at breakfast or dinner, at a master class, jamming together or simply hanging at the pool or around a late night campfire.
Full Moon Resort lives deep in the Catskills with a backdrop of 80,000 acres of natural beauty. Our hosts will offer cozy, comfortable and rustic indoor accommodations, as well as beautiful outdoor campsites with all the amenities. The camp includes three great gourmet meals per day, an olympic-size, spring-fed swimming pool and hiking trails along the Esopus Creek. There are several great performance spaces and meeting areas that will be used for activities, performances and “classes.” The site includes a library, billiard room, cafe, barn jam room, full service bar, and the Valley View House. Check out the accommodations options to fit whatever your financial or comfort needs may be.
All in all, Camp Railroad will offer quality time to hang with the band members and hear their perspectives about music, playing in Railroad Earth, touring, writing, singing and so much more. There will be full band performances, individual ones and other configurations to hear. There will be workshops with band members to share all of their musical interests with you. The crew and management will be there to discuss their experiences and share their expertise. You’ll also get to spend time and share experiences with band, crew and other fans from around the country. We hope to bring you a very special experience that you could not possibly find anywhere else.
Camp Railroad begins June 10th and runs to June 14th. Come join us in this special and unique experience."
