Alaskan Songwriter’s Workshop With Bow Thayer and Tim Easton

Join singer-songwriters Tim Easton (Nashville, Tennessee) and Bow Thayer (The Green Mountains of Vermont) for three days and nights of one on one songwriting instruction, with emphasis on both melodic and lyrical development, in the beautiful and inspirational location of Talkeetna, Alaska.  

​​ This workshop is for students and practitioners of all ages and levels with the goal of finding new ways to write and be inspired.  There will be group and one on one instruction with both of the staff songwriter/teachers, in order to work on how to develop and refine skills with meter, rhyme, and melodic improvisation.  

 Only 6 slots are available at a cost of $375 per student. 

 There is lodging available on site ranging from a private cabin rental to camping.  Meals are provided.

 Tim Easton  has published over 100 songs throughout 9 acclaimed albums.  He has placed his songs, some based in personal adventure, some based on character studies, in film and TV and has toured the world as a result of his songwriting.  Rolling Stone said his songs have “a novelist’s sense of humanity” and MOJO magazine called his most recent album, AMERICAN FORK, “uncompromising.”  

 Bow Thayer’s music features his custom Bojotar and fuses experimental elements with Americana, rock, bluegrass, and folk, resulting in a singular, progressive sound that has earned descriptions ranging from “Green Mountain soul” to “modern backwoods music.” American Songwriter says this “onetime Levon Helm compatriot is the best artist to come from New England in recent years”.

 115 miles north of Anchorage, the historic village of Talkeetna is nestled at the base of Denali, North America’s tallest peak   Talkeetna has outstanding views of the Alaska Range that can be enjoyed from several places in the area.   Hiking, fishing, flightseeing, rafting, zip lining and jetboat tours are just some of what this remarkable community has to offer.  Our unique location is located 13 miles from beautiful downtown Talkeetna.  We are less than 4 miles from an amazing fishing hole featuring trophy rainbow trout and amazing salmon runs.  One of Alaska’s most popular breweries, The Denali Brewing Company, is just a stones throw away!
