Young Tradition Contest deadline is TODAY April 1st

The contest deadline is TODAY April 1st.  13 have signed on so far.  Very easy, and FREE, to enter, if you’d like to give it a whirl.  The competition is designed to offer motivation and encouragement for young musicians and dancers to keep traditions alive and to support their involvement in traditional music and dance. In addition to cash prizes, 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. If you’d rather just reform with the competition part, we welcome that.  It’s 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 (can be short, old or new, just representative of what  you do)
  • names and ages of all performers
  • a brief biography of yourself or the group (3-4 sentences)
