Directors

Music Camp Organizers Erin Mae, Peter Lague, and Aaron Fowler will be organizing and operating the camp, and all have a wealth of experience to draw on.

Erin Mae has brought American music education into public schools, home school co-ops, libraries, churches, foster care programs and summer camps. An accomplished musician, she won the national Mountain Dulcimer Championship at Winfield in 2004. She went on to study classical piano at Sterling College, KS, before pursuing a degree in commercial music, with an emphasis in bluegrass and acoustic jazz, through South Plains College in Texas. After graduation, she began touring full- time as part of the duo Scenic Roots.

Peter Thomas Lague, an artist and educator specializing in murals, ceramics painting and many other media, has partnered creatively with Lewis before while organizing the Americana Music Academy in Lawrence, KS. In Operation Clean Slate, he worked with kids all over California to bring color and positive messages to graffiti-prone areas through the painting of murals. Lague will be taking on a mural project as part of Feisty Music Camp this year.

Aaron Fowler is A touring musician, storyteller and teaching artist. He has been making music since he was 16 years old! His greatest joy is getting folks to sing together. Whether a group of 4-year olds in a preschool classroom or a group of elders in a Hospice center, the world is changed when we make music together. Aaron is member of the Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts, National training team (Vienna VA), a teaching artist with Arts Partners (Wichita, KS) a Young Audiences Affiliate and a national touring singersongwriter. Aaron is a member of Local 1000 and serves as the US Vice President of the American Federated Musicians Local 1000 Touring Musicians union.
