Each year we invite a handful of artists from the upcoming Sisters Folk Festival to teach at a four-day immersive camp called the Americana Song Academy. Over 50 participants of all ages have the opportunity to take masterclasses on songwriting arranging, singing and gather in community with professional musicians. Participants receive 1:1 mentoring sessions and share their music in intimate song circles and open mic performances, hosted at the House on Metolius.

At the 2022 retreat, between camp programming and impromptu songwriting sessions, we recorded casual conversations between the artists and watched as they discussed their creative processes and performed original songs. It’s our pleasure to present the series, “Music on the Metolius” with four episodes from world-class Americana artists.

The first three episodes are live on our YouTube channel with a final episode coming out tomorrow. Check them out below!

Ep. 1 | Justin Farren, Beth Wood & Dennis McGregor

Ep. 2 | David Wilcox & Jeffrey Foucault

Ep. 3 | The Accidentals & Lindsay Lou
