There is live music at the Dream Away most weekend nights, and most Thursdays and Sundays as well during the summer season. The Dream Away is known across the region for its all original music and its lively, fifty-year running Wednesday night Hootenanny - all acoustic and all original music or music in the public domain.
The Dream Away features the best in up and coming original talent from the region and around the country. Musicians ranging from Pete Seeger and the Guthrie family to the Jeff Lewis Band and Hammel on Trial, from the Mammals to the Milagro Saints and Milton. San Francisco-based Vetiver and regional heroes Erin McKeown and Sean Rowe are regulars here. Beloved locals Bobby Sweet, Robby Baier, Hector on Stilts, The Stairwell Sisters, Norwegian pop star Teitur and nomad accordionist Jason Webley are all part of Dream Away's extended and growing musical family. Performers love the lodge's history, the lingering aura of Dylan and the Rolling Thunder Review, the intimacy of the Music Room, the relationship of the music to the audience, and the incomparable atmosphere of the Lodge.
Believe it or not, musicians at Dream Away play for dinner and tips. We feed them and we tip them well. All you have to do is tip them, so come prepared to tip generously!!
