A unique experience in a warm, welcoming camp
Since its beginnings in Johnson, Vermont in 2005, Northeast Heritage Music Camp has had on faculty some of the most revered, influential musicians--both established and rising stars--across a wide range of traditional styles that speak to New England music and dance. In 2012, we became a non-profit organization, and in 2013 moved our camp to Starksboro in Vermont's beautiful Green Mountains. With a focus on creating a music community, our student to faculty ratio is 7:1. There are endless opportunities to interact with all of our faculty in classes, workshops, band labs, jams, and around the dinner table. We are delighted to showcase the 2024 faculty--read on for a sneak peek including video and music files.

Becky Tracy
Fiddle, Irish, Quebecois
Comic Panel 1
Becky displays a distinctive clarity of tone, a rhythmic attack owing much to the French Canadian pulse joined with the melodic quality of Irish music. Her sound is unmistakable. She has been a defining presence in some of the most popular and innovative contra dance bands to come out of New England, being the fiddler for both Wild Asparagus and Nightingale, as well as Eloise and Co. Becky engages our campers with insightful teaching and musical artistry.
Jeremiah McLane
Accordion, Keyboard, Scottish, Arranging
Comic Panel 1
Jeremiah brings a wide range of experiences to his playing, including classical, jazz, Celtic, Scottish, and French/Breton music. He was a co-founder of the Clayfoot Strutters and Nightingale, both bands having a lasting impact on the traditional dance scene. Jeremiah continues to experiment and innovate across musical traditions. His musical breadth and expertise connect with both newer and more advanced players.
