Songwriter Retreat


  October 31 - November 4, 2024

Eagle Point Retreat; North East, Maryland

 Contact: Wyatt Easterling

Song Travelers focuses on your personal writer’s voice and goals, so there will be something for all levels of writing experience and skill. You do not have to play an instrument to attend, and you do not have to have written a song, just have a strong desire.

Our goal is to create an environment for you to find your inspiration, effectively put your ideas to music, refine your songwriting and co-writing skills, overcome what holds you back from your self-expression and leave with the ability to write better songs. Amazing things happen when we show up for ourselves.

Below are two examples of songs written at Song Travelers Songwriting Retreat

Mary Bragg

Nashville's "Americana Queen" (Vice/Noisey) Mary Bragg has been heralded in Rolling Stone, No Depression, and NPR Music, which named her 2019 album Violets as Camouflage one of the year’s best: "Her clear, warm alto, reminiscent of Patsy Cline, was made for confidences, and these gorgeously crafted and executed songs touch the listener on a deep level, where insight occurs.” 

Bragg tours extensively, both with her band and solo, playing headline and festival dates to ever-growing audiences across the US, Canada, and Europe. Having opened tours for the Indigo Girls, The Secret Sisters, and Mick Flannery, Bragg is gearing up for a robust year. As Saving Country Music said, “Watch out.”

Ralston Bowles

Considered the Ambassador of Acoustic Music in West Michigan, Ralston signed on with Judy Collins' record label, Wildflower Records in 2007. This placed his 2004 debut release, "Carwreck Conversations and his sophomore 2008 recording project, "Rally at the Texas Hotel," into distribution internationally through Warner/Elektra/Atlantic Corp. 

Ralston’s albums stand as thoughtful gifts to receptive concert goers who desire to hold something that can bring them back to those sentinel moments when they felt maybe certain parts of their minds and hearts somehow shared the stage with this growing legend.

Harmonica Workshop

For this retreat I'll be providing an introduction into playing the harmonica, with a smattering of history, harmonica types, styles of playing, and other tidbits to help you better understand this versatile and handy instrument. 

NOTE: You'll need to bring your own harp in the key of G . You can find  one on Amazon for less than $20. If you'd like more information on what to buy or what to expect, you can reach Todd 


At the end of the 8th grade as I cleared out my room to leave my prep-school for the summer break I found a discarded harmonica on my dorm floor.  My mother reached sainthood in my eyes that day as I never stopped playing it on the long drive home. I’ve been playing harps ever since. Over the years my collection has grown to pretty much every key made for harmonicas.  


I’ve been attuned to music all my life playing multiple instruments, and while I enjoy playing guitar, bouzouki, and mandolin the harmonica has been my signature instrument that has led to recording not only on my own albums, but on fellow artist recordings as well.

"Wyatt took my song Lost Child and stripped it to the core by asking me critical questions. It was within 20 minutes he sculpted my lines and pointed out where the real message was hidden."

"One of the best experiences I’ve had since picking up the guitar was at the Song Travelers Retreat!! Learning to write a better song and making new friends that have the same interest as me has been life-changing. I never thought an old rodeo bronc rider like me would learn to write songs as I have from this retreat. After 20 years of rodeo riding (and I’m still shoeing horses at 71), I now get to sing some of my own songs at gigs on the weekends instead of all covers and having a blast doing it!  Thanks, Song Travelers Retreat for an awesome experience!"

As a songwriter, I had never collaborated with other artists until I attended a songwriting retreat where Wyatt was an instructor. I was nervous, didn’t know a soul, and was not very confident in my writing or guitar playing skills. I walked into the retreat and the first thing I found myself doing was making guacamole with Wyatt! Eventually, I asked Wyatt to produce my first album and now I have a number of songs at country radio and a brand new cd just recorded coming out soon. If you ever thought you might like to write a song then don’t miss this opportunity
