The Sutton Traditional Fiddle Festival is returning for its eighth year of traditional music and workshops; with dances, concerts, and learning opportunities throughout the weekend.
Over four days starting August 18, artists from Quebec, Canada and the United States are presenting four mainstage concerts and two thematic concerts alongside the other musical activities.
“it’s mostly for fiddle music, so in pretty much every event they’re the main component,” Artistic Director, Marjolène Forest, said. “The festival is two days of intense teachings with three different teachers that offer classes to three different levels of ability. After that, on Friday, the festival starts, with concerts and masterclasses; we’re even bringing back the dances with some Balfolk dancing, which is European dancing that’s become really popular in the Quebec trad scene.”
