Music in the Mountains

Friday, November 3 to Sunday, November 5, 2017

Join us for an unforgettable weekend of folk music at Camp de Benneville.


There is something truly inspiring about a creative weekend of music-making together. Join us to elevate and celebrate the traditions of acoustic folk music at a memorable weekend of toe-tapping music!

All levels of fiddlers, guitar, and banjo players, percussionists, other instrumentalists and singers will attend scheduled workshps and jam in spontaneous groups througout the weekend. Those who wish to perform may do so at the Saturday night Hoot. This amazing weekend is so reasonably priced that you can hardly justify staying home! Lodging, meals, and workshops are all included in the price!

 Seldom will you find such a gathering of elevated talent as that which assembles on this crisp fall weekend at 6,800 feet above sea level. Sing, play, jam and dance, all day and into the night. Meet musicians and singers from all over California and beyond..

Lodging and six delicious meals are included in the registration price, and you won't have to lift a finger, except perhaps to pluck the strings of your instrument (and maybe to set up and bus tables). Music in the Mountains is sure tofolk-music-licensing enhance the artistic soul of each and every performer who attends.

This is our most reasonably priced adult camp at de Benneville, so even if you have no talent, but love to listen to great music, you may want to come on up and enjoy our comfortable facilities, great food and wonderful ambiance - and hear great sounds from morning 'til night...all at a price that is unavailable at all other times.
