Traditions Showcases

The Great Lakes Folk Festival strives to not only present great music but to inform audiences about the history and social context of the music. Each year, a few on-stage sessions are devoted to musicians who share stories about their art as well as compare different styles and traditions of playing one type of instrument (i.e. fiddle, banjo, accordion).

Traditions Showcases are always a popular part of GLFF, combining musical mastery, storytelling and a spontaneity!
