Thanks to Colin McKinley and Oliver Scanlon for sound engineering and Eric Kilburn of Wellspring Sound for lighting. The concert is free if you’ve paid for Saturday alone or as part of a multi-day ticket; walk-ins are $20 at the door. Tell your friends and family! The doors open around 6:30PM. We won't run out of tickets, but it's a good idea to arrive early if you need to park and buy tickets, or want to sit up front.
The concert will be followed from 9:30-11:00PM with an easy and fun Contra Dance called by Lisa Greenleaf - you can dance or sit in with the band (led by Eric Eid-Reiner, Autumn Rose Lester, George Fowler, and David Kaynor). The dance is free if you're at the concert; there are no separate tickets just for the dance.
After the concert and dance, Fiddle Hell continues through the wee hours of Saturday night! There are more workshops (check out Andy Reiner's Free Improvisation for all levels) and several jams (New England, Oldtime, and more), until 7AM. We'll also have jamming until 1:00AM (last call at 12:30AM) at Old Joe Clark's Pub in the hotel. While you can stay up late on Saturday night if you like, don't forget there are many more workshops and jams (and 3 concerts) starting at 9:30AM on Sunday (and various early bird sessions at 8:30AM).
