Blues Workshop, Whitehead Light Station, Maine
September 13 - September 16
I’ll be spending Thursday through Sunday, September 13-16, 2018, with a select group of guitarists and singers exploring the joys of acoustic blues on an island about 8 miles southwest of Rockland, ME.
One of the oldest lighthouse stations in the United States, Whitehead Light Station was commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson in 1803, the year of the Louisiana Purchase. It was the seventh lighthouse commissioned in the United States and has been in continuous operation ever since.
As of today, March 29, 2018, all rooms, but one (a double occupancy room) have been reserved.
There will be time for individual lessons/consulting as well as group instruction, jamming and performance, all in a very relaxed atmosphere.
I have visited the station and the combination of ocean, rocks, pines, and the sort of silences that such an environment lends itself to are all in abundance. The food is good. The company, better.
Grab a pal and come join us for this special time.
Single Occupancy: $1200
Double Occupancy: $945
Prices are per person and include tuition, lodging, all meals, and boat transportation to the Light Station from our mainland base. An additional 9% Maine state lodging tax will be charged on the meals and lodging portion of the fee.
