Presented by the Ashe County (NC) Arts Council.

The Ola Belle Reed Songwriting Retreat pays tribute to Ashe County, North Carolina Native and long-time Maryland resident National Heritage Fellowship Award and IBMA Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Old Belle Reed. North Carolina and nationally renowned songwriters on staff are excited to share their techniques in craft and art with you. Whether you are an experienced songwriter or about to write your first song, these retreats will help you add skills to your own magic, with detailed concepts, practice and instruction. There will of course be stories and anecdotes along the way.

The event runs over two consecutive weekend sessions. Each weekend will feature afternoon workshops and evening concerts.

Options abound! Purchase single concert tickets, register for a full weekend of workshops and concerts or do both weekends for a discounted price. Between weekends, some instructors will be available for on-on-one sessions at an additional fee. In need of tuition assistance? please email Jeff Fissel at
