A Bardic Journey of Music and Story
Explore the mystery and adventure of music in the Forest! Combining music, storytelling, and nature, Bards Guild mentors Eli Rusk and Madrona Eickmeyer will share their love of music, while engaging campers in the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and tempo. In true WildWise fashion, nature will be a teacher and guide as campers also learn about bird language and song, the music of the forest, the songs of the streams, and the rhythm of the sea. These elements of nature will influence stories, poems, songs, and drumming.
Campers will create instruments and take home a frame drum that they have made themselves. Camp will be a balance of musical creation and lessons, as well as playing active games and making friends. Rhythms of the Wild is an experiential, hands on, and fun three day Adventure in Music!
Rhythms of the Wild is WildWise’ first Bard Guild Camp. Bards are the keepers and recorders of culture. The Earth speaks in lore, and to be a Bard is to listen and reflect, weaving connection and bringing communities together.
