Ted & John will be our MCs again this year. Hear them also at WRUR-FM 88.5, Sundays, noon ’til 2pm.
The expected audience, 500-600; by 5 o’clock, some 1,600 paid admissions, with people still arriving; 100-plus musicians, onstage, or jamming and solo-playing up in the woods.
Musicians from all over Upstate New York, as well as Pennsylvania and as far away as Florida, will be performing onstage, on the grassy meadow areas, and along the trails in the forested areas at Punky Hollow - all ages and levels. All acoustic folk instruments from pennywhistle, banjo and mandolin, to the fiddle - and everything in-between - will be represented. There will be workshops in beginning fiddling, advanced fiddling (in the past, traditional country, Cajun, Klesmer), and pennywhistle, as well as workshops for the very young (including an informal onstage segment). The Buffalo Suzuki Strings Fiddle Club will return to our stage for its sixth year and, with other talented young people gaining national and international reputations, give us a spectacular glimpse of our fiddling future.
