Sitting down with a guitar, or a piano, and writing a song...do the words and melody come rushing out, or is it a struggle to create? Musician Steve Earle has been writing songs and performing for decades and he will be in the region this summer teaching the craft of songwriting. Camp Copperhead will take place in the Catskills July 20-24 at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian.
