YES GUITARIST STEVE HOWE HOSTING MUSIC RETREAT

2/22/2013

Yes guitarist Steve Howe will host the first-ever Cross Styles Music Retreat, scheduled for August 19th through the 23rd at Full Moon Resort in the Catskill Mountains near Woodstock, New York. Howe told Gibson.com, "This year I'm getting back to doing some solo dates, and the Cross Styles Music Retreat is an extension of that. I'll be enjoying the different things the event will demand of me, as opposed to just doing shows . . . Hopefully, my team and the audience can do a little mingling and learn more about each other."

Guitar players of all ages, levels and styles are welcome to attend the event, which will feature other guest instructors in addition to Howe.

Howe said that his approach to teaching guitar is different from others, explaining, "As I'm self-taught and don't read music, I come at doing workshops from a different perspective than many who teach. I'll be bringing my experience to the fore through performances, interactions with campers, and daily master classes."

Howe recently quit Asia, the band he co-founded in 1982 and which reunited its original lineup in 2006. He continues to tour with Yes, who will kick off a spring North American tour on March 1st in West Wendover, Nevada.
