Title: Irish Week is No More
Post by: poobah on July 23, 2021, 03:52:28 PM
We're sad to report that Roche Harbor has declined to further host our event.  Included below is their explanatory email to Dan.

It's been a great run and we'll miss it dearly.

From Brent Snow, Roche Harbor.

Dan Paulson,
 
Thanks for our conversations over the last week regarding the Irish Music Camp at Roche Harbor.
The email below is a summary and formalization of our talk.
 
The Irish Music Camp has been a great part of our late winter program for more than a decade.
Sadly, however, circumstances have changed significantly over the years.  The rate of change in the past 17 months has accelerated even more.
As much as it pains me to tell you, the run has been a good one, and like all great performances, the end of the show has come.
 
Here are the fundamentals of why we must, sadly, call an end to the camp at Roche Harbor:
Dan, I realize this may seem like short notice (7+ months), however the conditions are changing around us at a pace we’ve never seen before.
The Camp has been a memorable event for years.  It will be part of our history and one we’ll always remember.
 
We hope the Camp will find a new home.
 
Thanks
Brent
