Help Support Our Artists!

Our instructors are some of the finest performing artists in the world… who now have nowhere to perform…

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, most, if not all of them have seen their principal source of revenue – live performances – simply vanish until…… well, no one really knows for how long.

In order to help support these incredible musicians, we’ve created this centralized, alphabetical list of our 2020 instructors, their websites and links to various other projects they might have developed in order to help replace some of this lost income.

If you have the resources and would like to contribute, please click on the artist’s links.

Our instructors and the Swannanoa Gathering offer our deepest gratitude for your support.

Thank you!
