Fishin’ Musician Camp

 July 7, 8, 9 – Three days and four nights of acoustic music instruction (primarily guitar, mandolin and fiddle), fishing on blue ribbon water in beautiful Southwestern Montana, and wonderful camraderie at a delightful resort.  The Fishin’ Musician Camp is in a new location at El Western Cabins & Lodges.  In its 5th year, the camp brings together acoustic musicians for instruction (primarily guitar, mandolin and fiddle) and fly-fishing on the beautiful Madison River near Ennis, Montana.

“I’m excited about this change. We’ve been in White Sulphur Springs on the Smith for the last four years, and that’s been great. The camp needed a larger spot to grow, and the nice folks at the El Western helped us by providing rooms and a basecamp,” said founder John Lowell.  “Ben Winship and I love playing music together and this camp is a high point of our year. The groups are small and we have returning campers and new folks each year. Play music til lunch, fish til supper and then play music til bed? What could be better?”

Registration is open now and more information and fees are listed at or on their Facebook Page – Fishin’ Musician Camp.  Plans for a performance at the end of the camp are underway with a “bring-your-own-blanket” concert on Bear Creek Meadow on the grounds of El Western.

The featured professionals, Lowell and Winship, are members of Growling Old Men.  This acoustic Americana band has toured internationally and will be featured performers at the 30th annual Targhee Bluegrass Festival.  The group creates original songs and brings concert-goers a relaxed, engaging style.  For information on the band, visit
