Old Songs Folk Festival

June 22, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - June 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Old Songs is a family-friendly festival of folk, traditional, Celtic and world music and dance, known for its relaxed atmosphere, interactive sessions and workshops, hands-on experience and participatory nature. In addition to three concerts there are over 100 daytime workshops, dances or performances. Also featured are a juried craft show, food and instrument vendors, and a well-run children’s activity area.

Main Stage is held in a beautiful and gently inclined shaded grove, children’s activities (also shaded) include a hands-on musical instrument zoo for the little ones and the fabulous Great Groove Band for singers and players of instruments ages 6-17.  Camping is available on-site.  The Dutch Barn offers an intimate concert setting with lovely acoustics, and you’ll hear spontaneous music all around the festival grounds and camping area. 3 Ravens will be seen and heard across the fairgrounds throughout the weekend, in workshops, coaching the Great Groove Band, and on the Main Stage opening the festival!  Tickets are available now; full schedule of concerts and workshops will be announced in May.   Info on the Great Groove Band here.
