For information please email Janet & Elian at psgw.info@gmail.com

Spring Retreat will run from Thursday, May 4th after lunch to Sunday May 7th after brunch. There is an option for Friday, 5/5 after lunch arrival.

Costs for Spring Retreat:

  • $350 Thursday, 5/4 after-lunch arrival.
  • $300 Friday, 5/5 after-lunch arrival

Spring Retreat usually has around 70 participants. This retreat is very relaxed, like an old fashioned weekend-long house party with lots of folks to play with and plenty of space to play with them. Because of the intimate feel of this retreat, there is often time to sit and make music with folks you may have not had a chance to hang out and jam with before.

Go to the REGISTRATION PAGE to sign up and pay for Spring Retreat.


We do have a scholarship fund for retreats. The goal is always to make it possible for you to come, and still leave money in the fund for other folks who need it too.

What are retreats really like?

"Participants range from relatively beginning players through lots of professionals. Maybe 2/3 of us actually play guitar. Most of the rest of us play some other instrument, or sing passionately, or come with someone we love who plays. Some folks bring their kids. Lots of great harmony singers.

Fabulous old geezers and sparkling young musicians. Worlds collide and the music coruscates.

There are no classes. The only interruption to the music and conversation is good food. Lots of trading life stories late at night between tunes. (I forgot to go to bed again...)

Housing is in cabins and a couple lodges around a little lake in the woods. Nice places to walk. Decent beds, with bedding & towels provided. Heat & indoor bathrooms and showers in the cabins.

Folk, swing, gypsy jazz (especially at Winter), old time, celtic, bluegrass, singer-songwriter, classic rock & roll.... Big mobs singing Beatles songs & old Broadway musicals. Tiny hang-out-in-the corner and jam with one or two other like-minded folks in a quiet cabin (that's my favorite). Roam from cabin to cabin to see what's going on. Ask anybody "How did you DO that?" and you're likely to get a real answer."

Class lists are coming soon!
