The end of August is the sweetest get-away time of the year, but many of our vacation dreams were dashed by the wind and rain of Hurricane Irene.

Here’s a fun and economical getaway to make up for those good times you lost: an early fall Weekend of Music.

  • 200-guest retreat in rural North Jersey
  • food and lodging
  • three big concerts
  • master classes
  • listener workshops
  • family activities
  • lots of jam sessions
  • a casual and friendly atmosphere

This jam-packed event is designed to entertain lovers and makers of acoustic music. And it’s weatherproof!!

Performers and workshop leaders include international personalities, such as singing comedienne Christine Lavin (left) and bluegrass/jazz guitar pioneer John Carlini (right), and many national and local acoustic stars.

The nonprofit Folk Project’s fall “festival” is an astounding value, a Jersey treasure, and it just might make up for that vacation you spent mopping the cellar.
