                Join our daily song leaders' intensive to grow your capacity to support your

community in coming together in song.

          Do you have young children?

 

                       While most of our programming is geared towards ages 9 and up, many younger

children enjoy soaking in the harmony, and there will be a daily

experiential music hour just for kids.

Join MaMuse in concert!

 

 Our week will culminate in a concert on Friday, August 19, to showcase all we've learned, soak in the music of the powerful songstresses, MaMuse, and blend our voices with theirs for a final piece!  Concert tickets available here.

Heidi Wilson’s passion is to share songs in service to community and the wild world; songs that celebrate the seasons, bring groups together, offer thanks, muster courage, and make room for healing and grieving. She is drawn to the potent and surprising journey of deep-listening and emergent music making. She has also been exploring the traditional music of her Swedish ancestors and loves to share old songs of the forests and fields. Heidi has been leading community singing groups in Vermont for the last 15 years including work with the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, Village Harmony, Burlington Integrated Arts Academy, Young Tradition Vermont, Unitarian Church of Montpelier, Interfaith Partners of St Johnsbury, and Sterling College.  HeidiAnnWilson.com 

SongWeavers of Maine takes place on the traditional lands of the Wabanaki Confederacy.   In the face of ongoing threats to the land and water rights and self-determination of the Wabanaki people, we seek to weave threads of reparations, right relationship, and regeneration in part by contributing a portion of proceeds from the camp to organizations supporting Wabanaki health, wellness, and self-determination.  You can find out more about how to participate here
