ResoSummit 2010, being held in Nashville TN October 28- 31, 2010, is enjoying it's 3rd successful year as a workshop, hosted by some of the greats in the resophonic guitar world. For players and luthiers alike, the summit has been dubbed as being "Like fantasy baseball for reso-players!" The 2010 summit offers 3 days of workshops by a diverse, stellar faculty, 4 evening performances, after-hours jams, luthier consultations, and more. ResoSummit's home is the Scarritt-Bennett Center, a beautiful campus in Nashville's MusicRow-Vanderbilt area, with nightly performances at the Station Inn. The faculty for this year's event includes Rob Ickes, Mike Auldridge, Cindy Cashdollar, Dave Giegerich, Jim Heffernan, Orville Johnson, Randy Kohrs, Justin Moses, Josh Swift, Sally Van Meter, and Michael Witcher. Performances are scheduled by Darren Beachley and the Legends of the Potamac, featuring Mike Auldridge, and also performing will be New Found Road, featuring Justin Moses.
The schedule for the 2010 event are:
ResoSummit begins on Thursday, Oct. 28. Registration opens at 3pm, and on-site room check-in opens then also. There is an optional "get acquainted" dinner at 5:30pm in the Susie Gray Dining Hall at the Scarritt-Bennett, our ResoSummit "home", and the first official event of ResoSummit will be the 8pm performance that evening by New Found Road featuring special guest Justin Moses, at the Station Inn. Informal jamming space will be available beginning at 3pm, and is available after-hours each day of ResoSummit, as deep into the night as you wish to use it.
Friday features an all-Summit opening session, where you'll meet the faculty and hear them play in duos. Three workshop sessions follow, plus an "optional activities" hour with options ranging from informal performances to one-on-one opportunities to consult with faculty and our staff luthiers during "office hours". After a dinner break comes another Station Inn performance, followed by informal after-hours jamming. Saturday has a similar schedule, with four workshop sessions, an optional activities hour. This year, the Saturday evening performance will be by Darren Beachley & Legends of the Potomac, featuring Mike Auldridge.
Sunday features two morning workshop sessions, plus one 2-hour session after lunch. Typically, there are opportunities on Sunday for workshops at nearby recording studios, and the 2-hour final workshop is a good opportunity for a more in-depth treatment of key topics. ResoSummit then ends with a closing performance, either by a faculty member's band or ensemble, or a "Dobro All-Stars" performance featuring many faculty members, as was the case in 2009. This performance is scheduled to end by 6pm. Some participants leave on Sunday afternoon or evening; others stay overnight and leave on Monday, so we provide after-hours jamming space for Sunday night.
