World Music Camp

The 8th annual Errington World Music Camp is a program where youth aged 8 and up will have fun learning music and dances from Africa and Brazil.

Those youth who are new to marimba and drumming are encouraged to join the Beginner program. This program includes African marimba songs, gum boot dancing, and Brazilian samba percussion and movement.

Young musicians with prior experience are invited to join the Intermediate/Performance program. Participants will compose their own marimba songs, play traditional West African rhythms in a drum circle, and learn dances especially choreographed for the camp by instructor Nadjema Soro.

Rick Scott

RICK SCOTT is his own unique genre: an award winning singer, songwriter and actor, and Canada’s leading proponent of the Appalachian dulcimer. Over 40 years he has released 18 albums and performed his lively, original blend of folk and blues in nine countries.

His gift for combining music, humour and poignant human commentary has earned him a devoted following from four generations. He’s Goodwill Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation and curator of the Protection Island Museum. Rogue Folk says, “His gift for enriching and healing the human spirit will not soon be forgotten.”
