Young Tradition Touring Group members Ava White and Merry Kimble will perform for about 20 minutes for each of 2 sets (11:30am and 12:30pm). Vermont Young Harpers, a performance-based youth group organized and lead by Dominique Dodge, will play the first 10 minutes or so of each of the 2 sets.
The youth harpers program focuses on building and sharing a repertoire of traditional music and song from Scotland and Ireland. Young people from ages 10 – 18 with at least one year of experience on the harp are eligible to join and the group meets twice per month for rehearsals during the school year. Parts are arranged for beginner, intermediate, and advanced players to include students at all levels. In addition to providing a supportive peer group in which to learn traditional music, this program also offers public performance opportunities like this toward the end of each term.
