Become the musician you’ve always dreamed of being
JOIN US in Brandon, Vermont. We’ll take you on a musical journey to understand the roots of where all popular musical styles started – the blues.
From the Delta to Chicago to the mountains of Vermont, the blues is the crossroads where all musicians meet. Rock, rhythm & blues, country, bluegrass and jazz: these styles would not exist without the blues.
Activities include solo and band instruction, time for practicing, rehearsals, master classes, coached jam sessions, round table discussions and evening public performances. All events take place at the Compass Music and Arts Center and Brandon Music.
The Vermont Blues Retreat welcomes vocalists, guitarists, bassists, pianists and keyboardists, harpists (harmonica players), saxophonists and other wind players, trumpeters and other brass players, drummers and percussionists, and just about any other instrumentalists, as long as you feel comfortable playing the blues on your instrument. Also, while this program is designed for folks 18 and older, if you are younger and feel this program is appropriate for you, please contact us.
Our faculty have a direct lineage to some of the greatest names in the history of blues. As working musicians they honor and respect the traditions, the sharing of knowledge and providing mentorship. A high ratio of faculty to participants allows for individualized, hands-on interaction giving you key tools to improve your musicianship.
Faculty includes Dennis Willmott and Paul Asbell, guitars; Chuck Eller, keyboards; Kenny B, bass; Joe Moore, saxophones; Jeff Salisbury, drums.
