For the ninth time, we are entering the spontaneous bliss portal that is Wilcox Weekend! We will gather at the beautiful Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, NC on May 9-12, 2019 (with an optional Bonus Day on May 8th). Come join us!
“What's this event about? It's a gathering of musicians and non-musicians alike, brought together by a love of music and a desire to live with an open heart. There are workshops related to music, mindful living, and many other topics. But when it comes down to it, this is an event about two things: creativity and community.
Congregating at the beautiful, wooded Kanuga Conference Center, attendees get a chance to unwind from the speed and pressure of the day-to-day world, hear some great music, connect with old friends, and find friends they just haven't met yet.
Registration - COMING SOON!
NOTE - Optional extra day on Wednesday May 8th.
Here's the full scoop from WCQS-FM (Asheville's NPR Station) in their Report about Wilcox Weekend 8
As is the case with any group that is #totallynotacult, it can be difficult for an outsider to fully comprehend what the Weekend is all about. That being said, here’s what folks gleaned from spending some time with us at WW8. DISCLAIMER: while some of us danced West Coast Swing to Dave’s music, no Square Dancing occurred. AND while we can be a motley crew, no actual dogs (or chickens) were present or are allowed at Kanuga. Children and all manner of silly games and songs gave balance to the heart-centered seriousness we share. David Wilcox formed the foundation for a long Weekend of great music. David was joined by Grammy-winning guitarist Al Petteway. The two teamed up for “The Art and Craft of Guitar Accompaniment” which featured some fantastic music and insight into some of the thinking of two renowned musicians. Another excellent musician – Andy Gullahorn - was also a key component of Wilcox Weekend 8 too. Besides his own workshop – Andy also teamed with David for “Your Guitar May Be Used As a personal Flotation Device”. The two discussed how your instrument might also be considered a life-saving device (for themselves, and I think for others). We threw in waterfall hikes, added some canoeing and Frisbee, and stirred. What resulted (as usual) was more than the sum of the parts. Close friends and memorable experiences were created. We’d love to include you in next year’s Weekend!
