Greetings Django Fans!

This is to let you know that the Django in June website has been updated for 2010 and we are now ready to take registrations for our full-immersion offering for musicians, Django Camp. The dates for this year are June 15-20. Come celebrate Django's 100th birthday by joining us!

The first full-fledged music camp in the US dedicated entirely to the Gypsy jazz tradition, Django Camp offers an unparalleled opportunity for musicians who would really like to dig in with both expert teachers and enthusiastic students of the style. Whether you want to build a strong Gypsy jazz foundation or add another floor above the one you've got, we offer guidance, inspiration and camaraderie at a depth you won't find anywhere else this side of the Atlantic.

Our teachers and performers this year will make up the most internationally diverse group we've ever hosted. As you'll see from the roster below, we are ready for players of guitar, violin, accordion, mandolin and bass:

Joscho Stephan, guitar (Germany)
Biel Ballister, guitar (Spain)
Gustav Lundgren, guitar (Sweden)
Aurelien Bouly, guitar (France)
Gonzalo Bergara, guitar (Argentina via California)
Michael Horowitz, guitar (Djangobooks)
Tim Kliphuis, violin (Holland)
Evan Price, violin (Hot Club of San Francisco, Turtle Island Quartet)
Jamie Masefield, mandolin (Jazz Mandolin Project, Vermont)
Rob Reich, accordion (San Francisco, Gaucho)
Martin Sjöstedt, bass (Sweden)
You'll find all the details you need at djangoinjune.com, but here are just a few important bits:

Again, the dates for this year are June 15-20. (Tuesday evening through Sunday noon, with an early arrival option on Monday the 14th.)
The event is held on the beautiful Smith College campus in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Early bird tuition rates are in effect. The cost goes up if you dilly-dally. So don't! :-)
Dorm rooms are private, so when your blistered fingers are done for the day, you rest in peace and comfort.
Meals are also offered on-site, and the food is good.
Most of our instructional program is organized into 4 broad level of ability, novice to advanced.
That's it! I so look forward to sharing yet another incredible week of music with you.

Allons-y mes amis!


PS. If you're New York City this weekend, don't miss DJANGO A GOGO, with Stephan Wrembel, Maie Bittel, Biel Ballister, Babik and more. Info can be found at the websites for the main venues: Joes Pub and Barbes.

PPS. If you would rather not receive information from me annually about Django in June, please just reply to this email with the word "Exclude" in the subject heading and I'll gladly add you to my exclusion list. That should do the trick. Sorry for any intrusion.
