With Artists in Residence: Rebekah and Matt Rolland (Riso). Peter McLaughlin, Bill Vernieu.

Elkhorn’s music weeks have stretched beyond the popular Old-Time Music Workshop to include a second week with an open-minded folk orientation. There will be afternoon lessons and jam sessions after dinner led by Tucson artists Rebebekah and Matt Rolland and Peter McClaughlin plus a weekend appearance by Tucson’s Bill Vernieu. Old-Time music leaders Sandol and Rory will stay on for this week to continue playing music with good friends.

The Rollands music integrates distinctive folk, bluegrass, and americana songwriting and music. Their 2022 album New Eyes was workshopped at Elkhorn. https://www.youtube.com/@risoband
