Songwriters Camp with Jim Lauderdale, Darren Nicholson, Clay Mills, & More

August 12 - August 13

$30 – $675

Join us on August 12th and 13th as we welcome world-class musicians and songwriters to the Meadowlark Smoky Mountain Heritage Center in Maggie Valley, NC for a very special Songwriters Camp. Receive instruction and hear performances from Jim Lauderdale, Darren Nicholson, Clay Mills, Charles R Humphrey III, and Charlie Chamberlain.
This is a two-day event of interactive songwriting instruction with world class musicians. A demo tape is produced for each participant. The event also includes a concert by Songs From the Road Band on Friday night and a BBQ dinner and all-star concert on Saturday night. This is a unique event like no other, and space is limited to ensure individual attention is given to all participants.
Call 828-926-1717 for tickets and room reservations. We’re also be releasing a small amount of tickets to each night’s performances – these are moving quickly, so give us a call to secure your spot!
