Farmers Night Presents Tibetan Music and Traditional Folk Dancing

On Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m. you are invited to experience the world of Tibetan culture for the Third Farmers Night 2024 at the Vermont Statehouse. This will be an evening of captivating Tibetan music and traditional folk dancing. The Tibetan Association of Vermont performs traditional dance with a classical dranyen, a Tibetan string instrument. 

This year’s Farmers Night Concert Series offerings include 12 weekly Wednesday performances, with the exception of a break for Town Meeting in early March. 

The Farmers Night Concert Series is a longstanding Statehouse tradition that goes back over 100 years to a time when lawmakers entertained themselves in the House Chamber mid-week while away from home. Artists from around the state, in genres ranging from classical music to bluegrass to barbershop perform in the well of the House Chamber each Wednesday night during the legislative session — and the concerts are free and open to the public.
