SEPTEMBER 25 - 28, 2023

The Americana Song Academy inspires people to believe in their creativity and helps develop a community that supports that pursuit. Participants deeply engage and nurture their music, songs, and aspirations with the help of professional touring musicians. 

This immersive experience will offer master classes on songwriting from professional musicians, 1:1 mentor sessions or small breakout sessions from support staff, intimate song circles and creative and emotional support from our academy staff. The camp will take place at House on Metolius, providing a stunning, peaceful setting to tap into your most creative self.

Tuition for the 2023 Americana Song Academy is $700 and includes all instruction, meals and snacks. If you would like to enroll and pay over 4 installments, please email our finance manager for information.

“The ASA experience far exceeded my expectations. I arrived feeling tired and uninspired and I’m leaving with renewed hope and energy. And so many new friendships!”

  • What do volunteers get in exchange for their time & effort?
    SFF volunteers who commit to, and work, a minimum of 8-10 hours of "festival shifts" receive an All Events wristband that allows them access to all seven venues throughout the weekend when not volunteering (subject to venue capacity, as with all pass-holders). Training and pre-shift check-in do not apply to your volunteer hours. *Festival shifts only count towards the festival they are for, and do not count towards a different festival.
  • Is there a minimum age required to volunteer?
    Minors ages 14 - 17 are eligible to volunteer with SFF as long as they provide a signed waiver from a parent/guardian. Please reach out to Kaela Fox at for details/waiver.
  • What is Sisters Folk Festival's COVID Policy?
    Sisters Folk Festival will only require mask wearing or proof of vaccination for event entry if required by local, state or federal regulation. Patrons, staff, crew, volunteers and performers may continue wearing masks at their personal discretion. SFF recommends that high-risk individuals who choose to attend the festival continue to wear masks at this and in all public settings.
