The Mid-Winter Singing Festival has been renamed The Mid-Winter Singing and Folk Festival!
In an effort to offset continued rising expenses of the singing festival, the Ten Pound Fiddle, producer, has decided to expand the offerings of the weekend to include a Saturday evening concert involving three acts, and five instrument and dance-related Saturday afternoon workshops. What had been solely a singing festival is now a singing and folk festival.
On Friday night, song leader extraordinaire Dan Chouinard will lead a huge Community Sing. Saturday night's concert will feature sets from James Keelaghan, The Sweet Water Warblers, and Jay Ungar and Molly Mason. Ten Saturday afternoon workshops will feature five related to community singing and five which highlight instruments, dancing, and performance. Children's programming will include a FREE 11 am Saturday morning concert, featuring Mark Dvorak.
Under this wider umbrella of programming, even more fans of acoustic music can enjoy a full weekend of singing, dancing and incredible performances.
