TradMaD Camp —
Traditional Music & Dance Camp
Sponsored by the Folk Music Society of New York, Inc and co-directed by Joy Bennett and Heather Wood, TradMaD Camp is an annual six-day gathering of live music and dance for adults interested in traditional music and dance.
Held at the beautiful and historic Pinewoods Camp in Plymouth, Massachusetts, campers can enjoy daily workshops on specific topics (such as traditional ballads), instrument instruction, dances to live music, staff concerts, vocal coaching, parties, camper concerts, jamming, and singing — and much, much more.

Staff List for 2024 - to come. We're working on it..
Sadly, Pinewoods Camp closed just before the planned 2021 gathering, too late to organize a virtual event. But we did have a Zoom chat, and many of our projected artists dropped in. See the staff lists for 2023, 2022, 2020 (virtual), 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 . Our staff members are not only performers, they are also teachers who enjoy sharing their knowledge.
As well as listening and learning, campers will find plenty of opportunities to sing, jam, dance, and hang out with the staff and each other.
This event is being put together by the Folk Music Society of New York, Inc., with support from a bunch of associated organizations, including
|WHY?||Because we are mad about traditional music and dance of all flavors|
|HOW MUCH?||Prices for 2024 not yet set. The fee covers all events, lodging, and meals from dinner on Saturday through breakfast on Friday. Note: the food is excellent, and dietary issues and allergies are well addressed.
