“The Americana Song Academy brought me back to life, artistically… it rekindled the fire I had been looking for for a long time”
 Catie Curtis, touring professional singer-songwriter

 The Americana Song Academy inspires people to believe in their creativity and helps develop a community that supports that pursuit.

  • Artists performing at the Sisters Folk Festival arrive 4 days early to teach all aspects of music, songwriting, performance and singing.
  • Participants deeply engage and nurture their music, songs, and aspirations. Private concerts, open mics and mentor sessions are all part of the experience.
  • The musical alchemy of the festival artists from “Song Camp” helps inspire collaborations and exceptional performances at the festival each year.
  • Campers participate in workshops, communal meals and activities at the performing arts camp “Caldera”, a stunning location on the edge of Blue Lake, high in the Cascade Mountains.
  • With an extraordinary caterer, a beautiful and powerful location, and a unique, intimate experience, the event continues to be highly anticipated and sells out each year.
