This MeetUp is for musicians and music lovers who like to get together to share acoustic music. Activities include parties, workshops, jam sessions, open stages, sing-alongs, dances, and performances. Styles include contemporary folk, blues, traditional, standards, jazz, and even a bit of rock 'n roll. The group is designed for participation by advanced musicians, beginning musicians, singers and non-musicians.
We hold two Getaway weekends – Memorial weekend and Columbus weekend - plus a number of events at our home that combine house concerts with homemade music, parties, community and workshops. Our "mother ship," The Folk Project, runs homemade music functions throughout the year.
The Acoustic Getaway MeetUp is one function of the all-volunteer Folk Project, a nonprofit based in Morristown with over 500 members. The Project holds about 140 gatherings and performances each year. Learn more at www.folkproject.org (http://www.folkproject.org/) .

Getaway is an opportunity to learn, listen, perform, and jam. Genres are acoustic in the broadest sense: folk, blues, Southern, standards, jazz, swing, rock, world music, and your own music.
Concerts are intimate and powerful. Workshops are designed for music-loving listeners, singers, and musicians from novice to pro. Skill workshops focus on guitar, vocals, songwriting, performance, and general musicianship, and generally to all acoustic instruments.
The Spring Getaway lineup is stellar: Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo, The Slambovian Underground, David Roth, Irish Mythen, Zoë Lewis, Toby Walker, Meis Hora, Christine DeLeon, 2 Daves & a Dame, Music Town, and more.
Attendance is by pre-registration only.
Food, lodging, and all activities cost only $249 per person. The Folk Project is an all-volunteer nonprofit. Food is farm-to-table, and bedrooms are comfortable rooms for two.
