Be sure to take part in the Brattleboro Ballad Sing. This event focuses on the sharing of traditional-style ballads by various singers in attendance. (Could that be you?) Singers familiar with this tradition are invited to sing a ballad (or two, if time allows). Most likely we will hear ballads from the American and British traditions, but we welcome ballads from other traditions. Listeners are heartily encouraged to attend too. Admission is by donation; suggested amount is $5 to $10.
