Young Tradition Touring Group in Colchester, Vermont January 2018

The Young Tradition Touring Group are teen players, singers and dancers who focus on learning and performing traditional music and dance repertoire over the course of a 9-month, late September through early May session, culminating in an April performance tour.  Group members learn from and are supported by guest musicians and dancers/dance leaders, in addition to musical exchanges with young musicians and dancers while on performance tours.  Touring Groups have previously traveled to Cape Breton, Northumberland in England, and the West Coast of Ireland.  The 2017/2018 group is doing a trip to Scotland, including visits to the Highlands, Isle of Skye, Orkney, Inverness, Dunkeld and Edinburgh in late April 2018.

Members attend rehearsals, participate in fundraising projects, perform at dances, concerts and festivals regionally, and travel as part of performance tours.  Members are mostly from Vermont, but are not limited to Vermont……. the group has also included members from Quebec, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Maine.  There are no entry, membership or participant fees other than rooms and meals costs associated with a late December rehearsal (2 overnights) and travel costs associated with the performance tour.

The Touring Group is one of 30 programs operated by Young Tradition Vermont.  For more information contact Touring Group Manager Mark Sustic at mark.sustic@gmail.com
