We are very pleased to announce that Eliza Gilkyson and Joe Craven will be instructors at the 2017 Yosemite Songwriting Retreat.

Eliza Gilkyson is a 2-time Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and activist who has become one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots and  Americana circles. She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits,  Mountain Stage, etown, Sirius/XM, Air America Radio and has toured  worldwide as a solo artist and in support of Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Dan Fogelberg.

Joe Craven is a musician in the broadest sense of the word. Contagiously curious about musical sound, Craven plumbs the depths and outer reaches of his creativity with a flair for both the whimsical and the profound, as well as a refreshing openness about the vehicle he uses to get there. A former 17-year-member of the David Grisman Quintet, Joe Craven is a one-man band and his tool box includes a wide variety of string and percussion instruments as well as found objects. For 30 years, he’s recorded and performed with an incredibly diverse list of artists, including David Lindley and Jerry Garcia.
