New for 2020, the Susquehanna Folk Festival will feature a festival youth band program, sometimes referred to as a "Kids' Academy", coordinated by traditional musician Jane Rothfield. Students ages 6-16 who play an instrument and are interested in folk music are encouraged to participate!
At the festival, young musicians will get together, learn several folk music tunes by ear, and then perform them on the main stage. All instruments and ability levels are welcome.
Rehearsals are Saturday and Sunday of the festival, from 11am to 12:30, and the performance is Sunday from 3pm to 3:30. Youth festival tickets are FREE. A parent or guardian must be present at the festival site during rehearsals and performance: either attending the festival with a purchased ticket, volunteering (a volunteer shift gets you complimentary admission), or waiting in the parking lot. If this is an obstacle to your child's participation, please contact us; we can help.
