These Workshops are an opportunity to join the Weathervane staff and community for a hands on weekend of recording and mixing in a professional studio.
You can come for just a tracking or mixing day, or stay with us for the entire weekend as we make a brand new song from start to finish! Ask questions along the way and learn the processes and techniques we use for Shaking Through and every day in the studio.
To attend one of these workshops, you can purchase a day ticket or weekend pass (limited quantities available) or sign up now for an annual Event Access Membership that includes entrance to this and all other workshops, studio concerts, wrap parties, and any other Weathervane Music events for the next 12 months.
Philadelphia's Black Horse Motel crafts its genre-fluid city folk sound by taking traditional folk instrumentation and lyrics, blending them with Americana roots, rock, blues, and country influences and tying it all together with rich vocal harmonies. The resulting sound is infectiously foot-stomping, heart-breaking, familiar and new.
For this workshop, we partnered with “The Philadelphia Folksong Society,” a local non-profit founded in 1957 that is dedicated to preserving the past, promoting the present, and securing the future of folk music and related forms of expression through education, presentation, and participation.
