The Folk Music Camp at Northern Michigan University

Marquette, Michigan is one of the centers of folk music in the United States, boasting a very active folk scene, a history in ethnic music from the Anishinaabe people to the many European cultural groups that settled the region. It is also home to the annual Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival.

The Folk Music Camp at NMU plans to capitalize on all of those assets by providing a fun and creative environment for high school students to learn more about traditional folk music and to increase their own playing and singing skills. It will also be a ton of fun. See the Folk Music School website for more details including registration information.
