Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival | Brattleboro

January 30, 2016

$20 – $40

Southeastern Vermont’s Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival will take place on Saturday, January 30, 2016 in Brattleboro, Vermont.  Now in its 9th year, the Brattleboro Music Center’s annual festival brings together local and regional musicians representing the best of various northern musical traditions.  This year’s festival features over twenty musicians and the rich traditions of Ireland, Scotland, England, Scandinavia, New England and French Canada.

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.
