CANCELLED: YWIM Fundraising Concert

YWIM regrets the cancellation of our Spring Fundraising Concert, but we feel this decision is in the best interests of everyone, given the quickly evolving nature of the global COVID-19 outbreak. We'll look forward to announcing the new date for this event when we can all enjoy the creativity and passion of Yukon Women's Music.

Old Constabulary, Marsh Lake

JAMFEST is happening in 2020!! IT’S always good and we mean to have fun again ~ May 29,30,31 at our usual Marsh Lake location.

D'you want to participate in jams this summer? Are you looking for ways to learn and develop your playing and singing? Want to experience new music and people or maybe a new instrument to start your summer off?

In conjunction with Cosco Yukon Outfitting Ltd., Yukon Women in Music (YWIM) will hold a music retreat at Marsh Lake’s Old Constabulary subdivision from Friday evening, May 29, until 4:00 on Sunday, May 31. There will be instruction in guitar, mandolin, harmonies, fiddle, and other instruments, on how to jam, and more - for both beginner and intermediate players.

Classes are during the day, with jamming on Friday and Saturday evenings around the bonfire, culminating in a performance at the Jackalope in the Marsh Lake Community Centre on Sunday afternoon.

Cost: $150 for YWIM members; $175 for non-members; snacks throughout, and meals provided on Saturday and Sunday.

Not a member of YWIM? Go to ywim.ca and become one!

Bring your own tent, trailer or RV… there will be lots of camping spots available onsite, all included in the cost. There will also be a few beds available in the home onsite as well as the opportunity to “camp out” in the basement

Please email bcyukon@mac.com to put yourself on the list. This is not a firm commitment, but will put you on a list that I will send more information and registration details out to as soon as teachers are hired and the registration is on the website. The retreat is limited to 25 participants…and registrations will be on a first come first served basis when it all happens!

Thanks and hope to jam with you this May!
