YTV Essay by Deb Hartshorn

deb and dana hartshorn

Deb is Dana’s Mom and an early educator from Shelburne

I write about YTV as an extremely grateful parent of a young person who has benefited immeasurably from her involvement, tutelage and the friendships formed in the Young Tradition Vermont organization.

Dana is an 18 year old folk piano and accordion player, who is now intricately involved in the dance and folk world while attending college in Maine. She remains a integral member of the Young Tradition Vermont Touring Group, via Skype and school vacations, as the group prepares for an exciting cultural exchange trip to Ireland in April 2016.
