What is Cayamo 2016?

Root: /ro͞ot/ Family, ethnic, or cultural origins, especially as the reasons for one’s long-standing emotional attachment to a place or community…

In order to grow strong and have true staying power through time, solid roots are essential to the foundation of anything, especially communities that breathe life each year. These roots must be nourished through time in order to produce the strong limbs needed to continue to flourish. Of course it’s only natural that we spend this 9th Edition of Cayamo, A Journey Through Song doing just that; getting back to the roots of what makes this event so special for everyone that is a part of it; guests and artists alike.

Join us January 31 – February 7, 2016 as we sail from Miami to St. Maarten and Tortola aboard the beautiful Norwegian Pearl and continue in the tradition of delivering groundbreaking musical moments to everyone who joins us. More than a cruise, Cayamo is a celebration at sea packed full of music steeped in Americana heritage complete with the amenities and pleasures offered by Norwegian Pearl.

When it comes to community and roots, the lineup for this journey speaks volumes for what is in store. John Prine, John Hiatt, Jason Isbell, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miller, Steve Earle and Shawn Colvin are just the beginning of this incredible lineup. It wouldn’t be Cayamo without live music day and night, rare artist collaborations, late night jam sessions, and overall magical moments that can never be duplicated. Come and nourish the roots of Cayamo with the passion and love of music that runs through the veins of everyone who embarks with us on this journey through song.
