Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival

Sunday, January 26, 2020
Jan. 25-26
McNeill's Brewery
90 Elliot St
Brattleboro, VT

 

The Northern Roots Traditional Music Festival returns to Brattleboro.

The event offers a unique showcase of a variety of northern musical traditions including Irish, Scottish, English, and French-Canadian. The festival musters local talent as well as a roster of regional guests.

The festival begins Saturday, Jan. 25, with a slate of daytime participation and performance activities at the Brattleboro Music Center, including workshops, panels, mini-concerts, a dance band class, and more. Saturday also has a “family track,” which includes a concert and dance for all ages. The day concludes with an evening performance.

Sunday, Jan. 26, a series of boisterous participatory sessions – pub singing, French Canadian and Irish tune jamming, and more – will take place at McNeill’s Brewery.

This year’s Saturday performers include John Roberts, who plays concertina and banjo, and sings the traditional folksongs of his native Britain. He appears with Debra Cowan, who performs a cappella and with guitar in the tradition of folk singers like Joan Baez and Judy Collins.

lydia ievins, who plays nyckelharpa and five-string fiddle for Scandinavian and English Country dancing, infuses her playing with rhythmic clarity and sensitive phrasing.

Katie McNally and Neil Pearlman also will take to the stage with fiddle and piano. Multi-instrumentalist, stepdancer, and host of podcast TradCafe, Pearlman is a distinctive voice in contemporary traditional music.

Also on the schedule are Boston-based piper Joey Abarta and fiddler Nathan Gourley.
