The usual reminder, a house is just a house and only holds so many (about 45, with many seats taken by the workshop musicians) and our house concerts have always sold out - reserve early. Enjoy
Weekend registration includes workshops all day Saturday and a ½ day Sunday, Saturday evening concert and session. Potluck shared food, and Kingston has a range hotels to stay in - we can provide information
