Traditional Music Festival
Friday, January 28th, 2022 and Saturday, January 29, 2022
In 2021, this cornerstone of the traditional music calendar in New England was held in virtual form. It was an epic weekend – with fine music, record attendance – and a few things that could only be part of an online festival, including the cat who disconnected the internet, and the performer who found that the best wifi signal was in the chicken coop…
We are not yet ready to go back to full days of happily crowded rooms, hallways, and the pub but it is the 15th year and we are marking the occasion with two in person concerts and two online sessions!
The Northern Roots Festival is known as a showcase of the variety of northern musical traditions including Irish, Scottish, English, French Canadian, Shetland and more. This year is no exception with Welsh and French traditions making appearances!
The Friday night concert (January 28th, 7:30 pm) features: Hanneke Cassel and Yann Falquet, Arthur Davis and Emma Schneider, Rachel Bell and Karen Axelrod, and Rachel Clemente and Dan Houghton
The Saturday evening concert (January 29th, 7:30 pm) lineup includes: Yann Falquet, Becky Tracy, and Keith Murphy; Ben Gagliardi and Armand Aromin; Benedict Koehler and Hilari Farrington; Emerald Rae and Dan Frank.
