Contest Deadline is April 1st

The contest is designed to encourage young musicians and dancers to keep traditions alive and to support their involvement in traditional music and dance. In addition to cash prizes, the winners are provided performance opportunities in the region and linkages that would support continued involvement in traditional music and dance.

It’s a great opportunity to perform, and to meet other young performers. It’s also a great way to get connected to mentors and teachers in the community, and has opened doors for many to other performance opportunities. We award the top three acts a cash prize ($1000, $500 and $250). Send an email to Young Tradition Weekend manager Yasi Zeichner at yazbozz(at)gmail.com, and to mark.sustic(at)gmail.com with the following:

  • a video of your performance
  • the names and ages of all the performers
  • a brief biography of yourself or the group (3-4 sentences)
