Roots & Branches: Sharing Adirondack Music Traditions


Our annual endowed workshop offering young musicians the opportunity to study with well-known Adirondack performers, including:  Dan Berggren; Peggy Lynn & Dan Duggan; Sara Milonovich; and John Kirk & Trish Miller.

The Roots & Branches musicians share their deep experience in performing and will share Adirondack musical traditions including singing and songwriting, guitar, dulcimer and other instruments.  Participants will explore classic Adirondack music while developing their own style and technique.
