Blues Camp 

Hosted Downtown in Seattle for 2021: In Person with tRp Instructors & Interns!

In 2021, The Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival chose to deliver programming virtually. Our instructors have adapted this year's event to deliver music instruction in person at Seattle's Puget Sound Community School with five musicians working with 10 students. Each afternoon, from 1pm - 5pm, students will experience 3 sessions, and choose between piano, guitar, violin, voice, and music theory instruction.  Students ages 11 - 18 are welcomed to register. ​

While some sessions will focus on the virtual offerings presented by PT Blues staff, all sessions will be facilitated by tRp instructors in the room with students. 

Please register using the form below, and email with any questions. 

Since 2017, The Rhapsody Project has brought groups of students to the Pt. Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. “Blues Camp,” as we affectionately call it, was suspended in 2020 due to COVID 19, but is set to resume in August of 2021. This year, directly before the festival, the students will gather in person to prepare for Blues Camp in Mist, Oregon. Over a long weekend together, we will share the songs and stories of the culture bearers we will meet at Blues Camp!


This program is designed to equip students with everything from instruments, to performance skills, to lasting connections with blues musicians from across the United States.
