Are happier days here again? Hard to say, but I'm gearing up for live events starting next January. If anything changes, we adapt!
We start the next New Year with year #9 of our beloved
Cape Cod Songwriters Retreats

As ever, there are two sessions:
January 3-7, 2022 and
February 28-March 4, 2022

and once again, we study with the best of the best in the songwriter and musician world - Sloan Wainwright, Jud Caswell, and Abbie Gardner (January) and Sloan, Cosy Sheridan, and Alastair Moock in the second session. Greater artists and better people you won't find anywhere, IMHO.

There's a slight price increase so that we can better compensate our hosts Stan and Eva Sikorski for their generous welcome and our new caterer, Liz Lovati of the mighty Angel Foods right there in P-town. She is legend and I'm so happy to begin this new chapter with her at the helm of our food.

Please write me to secure one of 14 available rooms (some are spoken for already) - and double up in one of the room's huge beds to save $$ (for example, your shared room would cost $900 each for the week instead of $1200 for a single). There's a $600 commuter rate for the whole program and meals when we run out of rooms (you find and pay for your own housing in or near Provincetown).

A $100 deposit per person will hold your spot, unrefundable as of 9/1/21 unless we cancel altogether, in which case you'll get that back too.

Gee, it feels good to type the phrase "live events" on my computer. May it be so. And if for any reason we need to re-schedule, so we will. I want to start somewhere. Please circulate the JPEG if you so wish!

All 30 of us went as scheduled last August, with every hygiene and safety precaution in place, and it was utterly glorious. We paddle again, with 6 guides, 3 generous (and healthy) meals (all diets can be accommodated) a day, the most beautiful campsites in the world, and music by firelight each night. All levels, kids and grandkids welcomed (we may write songs too)...
