Summer 2020 was supposed to be our big 5 year celebration of Cook Shack Sessions, which has brought music and art to the remote corners of the Yukon. 

Unfortunately due to COVID - 19 we will not be celebrating in the campgrounds this summer. 

Instead we will be presenting a series of virtual presentations in a variety of formats and locations. 

"CHALLENGE 2020" - This year we challenged our YWIM Cook Shack performers to 

1) Perform a song or tune written by another Yukon woman songwriter or composer 


2) Perform an original work created for these unique events.  And now, here's the link to four fabulous women artists performing for you, from somewhere in the Yukon.  Enjoy!  

These events are made possible with funding from Yukon Government: Yukon Parks, Arts Fund, Tourism and Culture" Stay another Day"; PJ Productions, and Integrated Solutions, and amazing support from Yukon artists, crafters, businesses, volunteers and of course our wonderful audience! 

Thanks for supporting the Cook Shack Sessions! 

PS You can continue your support of this program during COVID - 19 by donating your refundable bottles and cans at Raven Recycling - Yukon Women in Music account

We are working on a virtual presentation for May...so stay tuned for updates on this site, on our FB page, and by email to our membership list.

We look forward to seeing everyone around a real campfire again when the pandemic has passed.

Till then....stay safe everyone!
