Sally –
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! What an incredible place to be and share experiences and laugh and feel like we have known you forever.
Of course, the view is spectacular and the sound of the water falling over the rocks is soothing and peaceful.
I can’t wait to come back. Hopefully next time Jan will be here too.
All the best to you both. It was our delight to stay with you for the past 2 nights.

Cheers, Tracy & Mark

Haliburton Winter Folk Camp at Camp Wanakita: March 6-8, 2009

Filed under: Activities in the Highlands,Jan Feb Mar,Specials — Sally at 1:59 am on Tuesday, December 23, 2008

The Haliburton County Folk Society and Camp Wanakita are colaborating towards the creation of the Winter Folk Camp taking place in the Haliburton Highlands Ontario 2 hours North of Toronto. The Winter Folk Camp is a weekend (Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon) full of all kinds of Folk Music created for a social weekend for adults in the Haliburton Highlands Ontario.

The Winter Folk Camp is being held at YMCA Wanakita near Haliburton, Ontario and is intended to be a late winter, affordable get-away with lots of music (concerts, classes, workshops, song circles, jamming and so on) in pleasant wooded surroundings with wonderful camaraderie, comfortable accommodations and great food.

The The Winter Folk Camp program has been designed to engage novice players, more experienced musicians and interested, but not particularly musical, Folk Music devotees. A weekend with us and those dreaded February “blahs” will be banished for another year!

The Winter Folk Camp program includes classes and workshops on Saturday morning and afternoon and on Sunday morning.

There will be evening concerts on Friday and Saturday featuring our Artists in Residence and showcasing some of our wonderful local talent.
Friday evening, Eve Goldberg and Katherine Wheatley will play our mainstage and Saturday evening Anne Lindsay will be joined by her long time collaborator and guitar wizard Jason Fowler.

Ample time has been left for a variety of complimentary outside activities (cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking etc.) and for jamming, snoozing or anything else you may wish to do.
