The retreat will be held from Aug. 19-23 at Full Moon Resort in the heart of the “Forever Wild” Catskill Forest Preserve, just one half hour west of Woodstock, New York.
Guitar players of all ages, levels and styles are invited to join Steve Howe and other guest guitar instructors for this incredible music camp--the first of its kind for the longtime Yes guitarist and founding guitarist for supergroup Asia.
“This year I’m getting back to doing some solo dates, and the Cross Styles Music Retreat is an extension of that,” Steve explains. “I'll be enjoying the different things the event will demand of me, as opposed to just doing shows. It's a wider breadth of 'guitarness,' and it indulges me in my singular fascination--the guitar. Hopefully, my team and the audience can do a little mingling and learn more about each other.”
After a full day of activities, evenings at the retreat will culminate with intimate, once-in-a-lifetime jam sessions.
“As I'm self-taught and don't read music, I come at doing workshops from a different perspective than many who teach,” Steve adds. “I’ll be bringing my experience to the fore through performances, interactions with campers, and daily master classes.”
