The “Cook Shack Sessions” are a series of family-friendly, free/by donation acoustic concerts and workshops by Yukon Women in Music (YWIM). This year, there will be three Cook Shack Sessions in Territorial campgrounds between July and September and one held in Whitehorse.

 

2024 dates and locations are:

  • July 13   – Teslin Lake
  • Aug. 17 – Moose Creek
  • Sep. 7     – Twin Lakes

 

Cook Shack sessions bring music to various regions of the Yukon and offer paid performance and educational workshop opportunities for YWIM performers and emerging artists. Each event includes a music workshop on Saturday, an evening concert featuring YWIM artists and a Jam lead by a YWIM host. All ages, abilities and skill levels are welcome to participate.

We'll also have a fundraiser concert on June 1st.

While we did not receive some of the funding that supported the Cook Shack sessions in previous years, we have enough funding to move forward with planning, and are seeking more sponsors. If you or someone you know would be interested in sponsoring the Cook Shacks, please reach out to us at cookshacksessions@gmail.com for a sponsorship package.

We are very excited to be able to move forward with the project and look forward to seeing you at the Cook Shack Sessions!
