Northern Roots

Traditional Music Festival

Saturday, January 27th and Sunday, January 28th 2024

2024 marks the 17th Northern Roots Festival, a perennially favorite showcase of the variety of northern musical traditions including Irish, Scottish, English, French Canadian, Shetland, Scandinavian, and more.

This year’s festival includes the usual varied schedule of Saturday afternoon workshops and a Saturday evening concert. Joining us this year are two Boston area groups – Eight Feet Tall, bringing us tunes and dancing, and Triga, bringing Scandinavian-influenced tunes on nyckelharpa, fiddle, and bouzouki. The evening concert will also feature Jake Grieco and Cedar Stanistreet’s Irish flute & fiddle playing and Amanda Witman’s singing. To round out the evening concert, the 2024 edition of Traddleboro will feature Laurel Swift, Lissa Schneckenburger, and Liana Moskowitz.

On Sunday NRF continues its traditional three session afternoon format, with a Pub Sing, French Canadian Session, and Irish Session, all hosted downtown at the River Garden Marketplace.

Here is the full 2024 schedule card of events!
