Tweetings from Umphrey’s McGee sUMmer School

No strangers to innovative fan-interaction, Umphrey’s McGee (@umphreysmcgee) is currently hosting the first session of sUMmer school at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York. Deep in the Catskill Mountains, the five day music camp experience allows 150 of their fans and fellow musicians to interact with the band and crew. Attendees have a chance to go to workshops, Q&A sessions, jam with the band and hang out with the UM crew all week long.  School was in session starting Monday and a syllabus of the activities, which run through Sunday, can be viewed here. The first reports from school have been rolling in via Twitter and we’ve rounded some of them up below.
