This is a Groupmuse Massivemuse

Epic performances in unexpected spaces.

Groupmuse CEO, founder, and feller behind all of the innumerable lovingly written Nights Out and Massivemuse emails you so patiently either ignore or read but don’t unsubscribe from, Sam, recently moved to 340 acres of glorious, historic, and protected land called Claymont Court in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle with his partner Emily, who is notably the originator of the Massivemuse. 

One of the major intentions behind the move is to start a Groupmuse Summer Festival on these splendid grounds. The dream is to create an ecstatic and immersive multi-day experience around this music for our national community to share together, but it’ll be some time before this dream achieves full expression (so keep your eyes and emails opened...). That said, this very summer we’re taking our first small steps with a couple of Massivemuses, the first of which is on Saturday, July 28th and the second of which is on Saturday, August 4th.

Claymont is about 80 minutes from Washington DC and 45 minutes from Dulles Airport, which is obviously far too great of a schlep for just an evening concert, so what we’ve decided to do is make a stack of tickets available for folks who want to come down and camp on the enormous and pristine grounds for the night. The evening starts with a panel discussion on regenerative environmental stewardship*, then we’ll have a huge Massivemuse in the glorious Octagonal performance space on the grounds, and for those spending the night, we’ll have campfire shenanigans and perhaps a midnight performance under the moonlight. The ecstasy will extend for as long as we stay awake!

On July 28th, we'll be sharing the moonlight with the beloved Warp Trio, who have Groupmuse'd coast to coast AND across the Atlantic.

On August 4th, we'll be joined by the President's Own Marine Band Pianist Chris Schmitt and the electrifying violinist Henry Flory.

Both programs are TBD, but they'll be sweet beyond reason, rest assured.

We can’t wait to take this step with you!

*Both of these Massivemuses are part of a larger Permaculture Festival, which you can learn about here (July 27th to July 30th) and here (August 3rd to August 6th). The panel is one of the offerings and is included with Massivemuse tickets, whether you’re staying for the night or just for the evening.
