Young Tradition Festival Reception & Mentor/Student Showcase

May 4, 2019, 5:00PM - 9:00PM

In late April and early May 2019, Young Tradition Vermont will bring together young people involved in traditional music and dance, and those who support and are interested in what they do, in an effort to share with the community young trad singers, players and dancers and what they bring to the world. At the Young Tradition Festival, young folks are the focus, supported by their teachers, mentors, friends, and families. With opportunities to interact with others, young people can use what has inspired them, what they have learned, and opportunities to perform to inspire others.

Part of Young Tradition Festival is the Saturday reception (with free pizza!) and contest awards presentation, followed by the ever-popular mentor/student showcase. The showcase features a wide variety of teachers and students of traditional music and dance from various cultures which make up the VT community, as well as featuring special guests throughout the evening. This event is a great way to share the connections through which these traditions are passed on and to be inspired by the folks of all ages who take part in the music and dance of the state.

Cost: $15
