Music In The Mountains

Friday, November 1 — Sunday, November 3, 2019

Join us for an unforgettable weekend at

Camp de Benneville Pines

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, guitarists, banjo players, percussionists, and other instrumentalists and singers may attend scheduled workshops and jam in spontaneous groups throughout the weekend. Those who wish to perform may do so at the Saturday night concert. Even if you think you have no talent, but love to listen to great music, you want to come on up and enjoy our comfortable facilities, great food, wonderful ambiance and hear great sounds from morning ’til night. Seldom will you find such a gathering of elevated talent as that which assembles on this crisp fall weekend at 6,800 fee above sea level. Sing play, jam and dance, all day and into the night. Meet musicians and singer for all over California and beyond. Music in the Mountains is sure to enhance the artistic soul of each and every person who attends.

Our headliner this year is guitarist and mandolinist, Mike Mullins. Mike has been a respected fixture in the California acoustic music scene for over 40 years. In addition to the Hay Dudes, he has toured or recorded with renowned fiddlers Phil Salazar and Byron Berline, The Acousticats, The Tom Corbett Trio, banjoist John McEuen, songwriter Penny Nichols, multi-instrumentalist Joe Craven and is a current member of The Cache Valley Drifters. He has contributed to over 100 recordings, and in November of 2014 released his first solo project, “Windows of Time,” a compendium of guitar and mandolin Americana styles showcasing his original material over a 25-year span. In addition to acclaim as a solo artist, Mike is widely regarded as a top-tier mandolinist and for multiple summers as an artist-in-residence at The Annual Mandolin Symposium hosted by David Grisman and Mike Marshall. Mike is currently at work on 8-String sketches,” a collection of solo mandolin arrangements of music from around the world. Click here to read more about Mike.

This amazing weekend is so reasonably priced that you can hardly justify staying home! Lodging and six delicious meals are included in the registration price, and you won’t have to life a finger, expect perhaps to pluck the strings of your instrument ( and maybe to set up and bus tables). This is our most reasonably priced adult camp at de Benneville Pines.

Should you want to arrive at camp on Thursday evening, that option is available for an additional $20 per person. If you choose this option, please be prepared to bring food for dinner on Thursday and breakfast and lunch on Friday. The first meal served will be dinner on Friday night. Please be sure to check the appropriate box on the registration page!
