ResoSummit: Total Dobro Overload by Design!
Registration Fee: $450
The registration fee is $20 higher than 2013, reflecting our increased costs. The prices for on-site housing and meals are unchanged from 2013.
Payment of Fees:
Every year, we are able to make offers to people on our wait-list. Signing up is easy: click the link below, and complete a simple sign-up survey. The date and time that you submit the sign-up survey establishes your priority on the wait list. Note that in our discretion, we may give higher priority to international wait-listers, given the logistical complexities involved in attending ResoSummit from abroad.
Please review this cancellation & refund policy CAREFULLY before paying your deposit or fees.
ON OR BEFORE AUG. 1, 2014, registration fees and on-site lodging deposits are fully refundable minus a $25 cancellation fee.
ON & AFTER OCT. 1, registration fees and on-site lodging and meals payments are non-refundable.
Although we reserve the right to follow the terms of this cancellation & refund policy strictly, if we are able to fill the vacancy from our wait list or reassign your room and meals to another participant, we may, in our sole discretion, elect to refund a greater portion of your deposit.
Please note that many people on our wait list need several months' advance notice in order to be able to arrange to attend. If you need to cancel, the sooner you do so, the more likely it is that we can fill your space from the wait list.
Many ResoSummit participants bring family members or friends with them to Nashville.
At registration on Thursday afternoon, and during ResoSummit, you can buy "friends and family" tickets (price TBA) so that your family members or friends can join you for the evening performances at The Station Inn. You can also purchase on-site meals for your friends and family (by pre-order, in advance of the event). Family and friends are welcome to participate in after-hours jams on instruments other than dobro (and we especially encourage bass players!). However, workshops and other daytime ResoSummit activities, including the opening session, are open to registered participants only. You may bring family/friends to the closing performance on a space-available basis.
Our Restaurants+Diversions webpage lists nearby restaurants and some interesting activities for Nashville visitors, and we'll update this list as ResoSummit gets closer.
STATION INN PERFORMANCES
Friday, Nov. 14 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 and demos to one-on-one opportunities to consult with faculty and our staff luthiers during "office hours". After a dinner break we'll be back at the Station Inn for a performance, followed by informal after-hours jamming.
Saturday, Nov. 15 has a similar schedule, with four workshop sessions, plus an optional activities hour, and an 8pm performance at The Station Inn.
ResoSummit offers approx. 80 workshops during 10 workshop sessions, covering a broad range of topics. The workshop schedule includes core topics offered every year, along with new topics based on faculty interests and suggestions from prior years' surveys. Check out the 2013 workshops here.
NEW FOR 2014: We will be offering special workshops that will give interested participants an opportunity to be in a very small (6 max.), level-controlled, and highly-participatory workshop, focusing on individual critique and feedback. Details will be in the 2014 Workshop Schedule, and participants will be surveyed in advance of the schedule's publication to help us best design these small-group sessions.
