Internationally renowned master acoustic guitarist Andy McKee has created “Andy McKee’s Musicarium.”
As his first ever music camp, the event will take place August 3 - 7, 2015 at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY in the Catskill Mountains.
The 4-day experience will be an immersion in music, guitar playing and all things creative.
Led by Andy with his handpicked guests and instructors including top players like Antoine Dufour, Stephen Bennett and Billy McLaughlin, plus a special appearance by master guitar builder Michael Greenfield, the ‘Musicarium’ will be filled with workshops, breakout sessions, jamming, open mics, concerts, and music in every way, shape or form.
Additionally, camp sponsor Ernie Ball will be on hand to help set up participant’s guitars and also give a special presentation on the making of acoustic guitar strings.
“This is the first time I’ve put together a music camp and I’m really excited for it,” said Andy. “It’s going to be a great opportunity for us to all become better musicians.”
Registration for “Andy McKee’s Musicarium” is now open and packages can be purchased at the official website.
Andy has also teamed up with Ernie Ball for their “Acoustic Prodigy” contest to find the next great acoustic guitar player. One grand prize winner will win an all-expenses paid trip to Hollywood, CA to record an EP produced by Andy McKee himself at NRG Recording Studios.
Those interested can submit their best video of an original acoustic performance at the official contest site to be entered. The grand prize winner will also receive an opening performance slot at one of Andy’s 2015 tour dates (nearest city to the winner), a Taylor 414CE Acoustic Guitar, a feature with Acoustic Guitar Magazine on AcousticGuitar.com, and an Ernie Ball string endorsement.
The ever busy Andy McKee is currently in the middle of a 44-date U.S. tour in support of the recently-released Mythmaker, his first new music in four years.
