Festival Fever: Old Songs Festival @ Altamont Fairgrounds, 6/25-27/10

Of course, we’ve previously announced many of the headlining performers for this weekend’s Old Songs Festival of Traditional Music and Dance at the Altamont Fairgrounds in Altamont.

And while the Old Songs Fest features a daily main concert on Friday and Saturday evening as well as Sunday afternoon, at least half of the fun of the fest is wandering through the grounds and discovering all sorts of wonderful, unexpected music and fun at the many, many workshops, classes, mini-concerts, jam sessions and informal get-togethers that take place all throughout the daytime. You can go here to find a complete schedule.
