The “Old Time Music Festival” area (out back) will be mostly unchanged, but less organized & more spontaneous.
Going back to the basics: Fresh air, rough camping anywhere on the Farm, lots of pickin’, post-pandemic relaxation & fun with friends.
There will be no Main Stage and no music “budget”, musicians will not be paid.
We will setup a small Open Mic Stage tent with a sign-up board for anyone who would like to perform.
There will be no “organized” dances, jams or workshops. We’ll have a workshop area with a sign-up board available & dancing can happen outdoors or in the Bank Bldg if anyone wants to call, play & dance. Jam & Song Tents will be available all weekend. If a potluck happens on Saturday evening that would be wonderful! (No pressure). We’ll have a Gospel Sing on Sunday AM
We will be asking for donations at the event, & I would love them to see lots of $$ from the musicians. It’s possible that without the expenses of the vendors, they might net more $$ overall. It is an important fund raiser for them. If you have the urge to donate now, here’s a page on the website where you can make a donation: http://bradfordlandmark.org/index.php?Supporting%20Us
P.S. Every year I run around with my hair on fire trying to keep everything on schedule & “under control”. This year I’ll be there to pick & sing & enjoy what I’ve been missing most this past year: Music with friends. We’ll need fewer volunteers this year, but we’ll still need a few; if you’re so inclined please let me know.
