The Kids Are Alright! Family and the Thriving Multigenerational Musical Tradition
Session Location
State Ballroom

For a folk fan, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing a young person pick up a fiddle or guitar and dip their toes into the tradition we know and love…. Come join several musicians (singer-songwriters, folk, bluegrass and blues players) and their kids as they talk about what it takes to pass on the tradition, how to find the balance between useful mentoring and pushing too hard, and the appeal of inter-generational performance. We’ll do some discussing and also demonstrate some of the finest picking and singing by young folks happening in New England!
