enriching lives through music

Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival

Saturday & Sunday, January 30-31, 2021

Keith Murphy, Director

Now a cornerstone of the traditional music calendar in New England, the Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival returns to Brattleboro Jan. 30-31.

The popular event, directed by Keith Murphy, continues to offer a unique showcase of a variety of northern musical traditions including Irish, Scottish, English and French Canadian. The festival musters the considerable local talent in the Brattleboro area as well as a select roster of regional guests.

The festival begins Saturday, Jan. 30, with a full slate of daytime participation and performance activities at the Brattleboro Music Center, including workshops, panels, mini-concerts, a dance band class, and more. Saturday also has a special “family track,” which includes a concert and dance for all ages. The day concludes with a gala evening performance.

Sunday, Jan. 31, a series of boisterous participatory sessions — pub singing, French Canadian and Irish tune jamming, and more! – will take place at Brattleboro’s local pub, McNeill’s Brewery.
