Thank you for another year
of wonderful memories.
I haven't quite come down
from my Windham high as
my mother and I call it
A personal thanks for the
gracious hospitality that
was extended to our band.
We thoroughly enjoyed
every aspect of the
Gathering. Every piece
of music we heard
throughout the weekend

Confederates at the Keyboard & Civil War Era Musicals
Dr David Thompson will present an extensive piano repertoire of Southern parlor music, based on his research, on Sunday. David's excellent program will compliment Helen Beedle's wonderful Civil War era musicale that will be performed on our stage on Saturday. We are very pleased to have these two fine pianists at Windham. Each will entertain our Grand Concert Audience
Music in Camp Jam Session
Gathering musicians will conduct their highly energetic and entertaining jam session on Friday night from 8:30-9:30 p.m. Bring your voice, guitar, banjo, fiddle and Irish drum and join the circle for a camp sing-along. Jam sessions will be held all weekend long.
Shape Note Singing (New Track for '05)
If you remember the acapella church singing featured in the film Cold Mountain then you're familiar with this popular spiritual music genre of mid-19th century America. There will be a workshop on Sunday followed by a vocal program. We are very excited about this exuberant music experience.
