The Young Tradition Touring Group will perform on 3/9/19 at the Seven Stars Arts Center in Sharon. More info about Seven Stars Arts Center at www.sevenstartsarts.org.
This will be the 3rd public performance of material the group has been working on since September 2018. Featured will be artist leaders, youth leaders and members of the 2018/2019 Touring Group. Future performances in Vermont will be in Burlington (4/9/19 and 5/4/19), and in a variety of locations in metro New York/New Jersey between 4/20/19 and 4/28/19.
The Young Tradition Touring Group consists of 27 auditioned (11 to 19 years old) 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. The group is visiting metro New York and New Jersey in 2019. Group members will learn from and participate in exchanges with master artists, other young musicians and dancers, and organizations during the performance tour.
The group is supported by artist leaders Pete Sutherland, Jeremiah McLane, Oliver Scanlon, Addison White & manager Mark Sustic. Though most Touring Group members are from Vermont, the group also includes members from Massachusetts and the Adirondacks.
At the concert, the Touring Group will welcome another group of young musicians. They are all students of fiddler Beth Telford, who has been performing and teaching in Vermont and beyond for more than 30 years.
