enriching lives through music

Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival

 

Saturday & Sunday, January 25-26, 2020

Keith Murphy, Director

The popular Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival returns Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 25 and 26, 2020, with music, dance and celebration.

Now a cornerstone of the traditional music calendar in New England, the Northern Roots Festival, 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 at noon 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. Also offered is a special “family track,” which includes a concert and a dance for all ages.

The Festival continues Sunday from 1 to 5:30 p.m. with a boisterous series of participatory sessions — pub singing, French Canadian and Irish tune jamming —  at the local pub, McNeill’s Brewery, in Brattleboro.
