Keith Murphy, Director

The BMC presents the 11th annual Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival on Saturday, January 27. 2018 in Brattleboro, Vermont.  This day-long celebration brings together local and regional musicians representing the best of various northern musical traditions.

The annual Northern Roots Festival is a celebrated opportunity for Brattleboro’s vibrant community of traditional musicians to come together to share their music with each other and the community at large. The festival also draws on the richness of talent in the broader region, with players from throughout New England coming to perform, teach and participate in informal sessions.

The Northern Roots Festival begins with a full slate of daytime participation and performance activities, including workshops, panels, mini-concerts, pub sessions, and a dance band workshop that leads to playing for a family dance. The festival concludes with an evening  performance featuring musicians representing the best of the northern musical traditions.
