This will be the 2nd public performance of material the group has been working on since September.  Featured will be artist leaders, youth leaders and members of the 2018/2019 Touring Group.  Future performances in Vermont will include Sharon and Burlington, and in metro New York/New Jersey in April.

The Young Tradition Touring Group consists of teen players, singers and dancers who focus on learning and performing traditional music and dance repertoire over the course of 9 months, starting in September and ending in early May at the 2019 Young Tradition Festival, including an April performance tour.  The group is visiting New York and New Jersey in 2019.  Group members learn from and are supported by a group manager, artist leaders and guest artists, in addition to exchanges with master artists, other young musicians and dancers, and organizations while on the performance tour.

The group is currently supported by leaders Pete Sutherland, Jeremiah McLane, Oliver Scanlon, Addison White & manager Mark Sustic.  The 2018/2019 Young Tradition Touring Group includes 27 auditioned members ranging in age from 12 to 19. Though most Touring Group members are from Vermont, the group also includes members from Massachusetts and the Adirondacks.
