Friday Night Main Concert - Celebration of American Old Time Music.

Friday Night Main Concert - Celebration of American Old Time Music.

Over the years, the festival has established a strong connection to American Old-Time music and the incredible community of musicians who are dedicated to collecting, sharing and performing the older tunes and songs. As a result, the festival has seen more and more Old-time sessions, and the introduction of the square dance on the Sunday evening before the final concert.  We dedicate the Friday Night Concert to this genre of music where every year appreciative audiences have enjoyed a variety of talented artists in a beautiful setting. On Friday, June 5th at 8:00 pm we are looking forward to welcome you back to the beautiful Holy Trinity Church to Celebrate American Old-Time music at its best.

This time around, we have three bands including two who are making their Irish debut, and one band comprised of members who have all been on our main stage, but with other groups.
