The Weight, Levon Helm Studio and Music Masters Camps are very excited to present Camp Cripple Creek at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York (just a half hour west of Woodstock) from Monday, August 19 to Friday, August 23, 2019.

At Camp Cripple Creek we'll share our love for the music we treasure so deeply ~ with concerts, performances, interactive workshops, teaching clinics, songwriting explorations, talks from industry professionals who were close at hand... accompanied by plentiful on-stage jamming with the attendees (you!), open jam rooms for all to join in on with backline equipment provided, open mics and song-circles around the campfires.  So, if you're a musician, bring your instrument and learn from and jam with these grand masters. If you're simply a lover of these great, classic songs, bring your good spirit!  We plan to have a truckload of some Very Big Fun...

Full Moon Resort is a one hundred acre wonderland of fields, meadows and mountain streams - featuring country-inn style accommodations, luxury cottages, glamping, camping and gourmet dining, a variety of beautiful barns, the infamous Roadhouse  and the spectacular new Moondance Pavilion, home to scores of magical performances at the Music Masters Camps.

The event is anchored by host artist, The Weight, featuring members of The Band, Levon Helm Band and Rick Danko Group with their brilliant interpretations of this legendary music.  Jim Weider, Brian Mitchell, Albert Rogers, Matt Zeiner and Michael Bram represent a direct lineage to this penultimate Woodstock-era group,The Band.  We are also happy to announce that musicians extraordinaire, Paul Barrere, Fred Tackett and Kenny Gradney from Little Feat will join us for workshops and performances... as will folk-rock legends, Brewer and Shipley.  Other Special Guests include lap steel/dobro grandmaster, Cindy CashdollarLarry Packer (Fiddler extraordinaire, who played at The Last Waltz), drummer & vocalist, Randy Ciarlante (The Band) and Don LaSala (Owner/Historian of Big Pink.)

Please join us for four days and nights of performances, interactive jams, song-circles, open mics, workshops and dining and celebrating with us at Full Moon Resort!

We would like to keep this a very intimate experience, designed for those who love this music the most, so registration is limited to 100 attendees!  

Camp Cripple Creek promises to be both a once-in-a-lifetime interactive, educational, music-vacation experience...  and a ton of wonderful fun!  We're looking forward to hanging and playing with you at this magical event!
