The “Cook Shack Sessions” are a series of family-friendly, free/by donation acoustic concerts and workshops by Yukon Women in Music (YWIM). This year, there will be three Cook Shack Sessions in Territorial campgrounds between July and September and one held in Whitehorse.

Cook Shack sessions bring music to various regions of the Yukon and offer performance and educational workshop opportunities for YWIM performers and emerging artists. Each event includes a music workshop on Saturday, an evening concert featuring YWIM artists and a Jam lead by a YWIM host. All ages, abilities and skill levels are welcome to participate.
