The Summit School of Traditional Music & Culture remembers Pete Sutherland on Friday, March 31, 2023 at 7pm with a showcase of youth traditional musicians from central Vermont. Pete was an avid supporter of youth musicians of all ages and impacted the lives of both student fiddlers and teachers throughout his home state of Vermont. The traditions carry on through fiddle jams, trad band classes, singing, composing, and dancing, all alive and well in the community.
The showcase will be followed by an introductory Balfolk dance – a fun accessible, European-style folk dance. The dance will be played and called by multi-instrumentalist and talented teacher Nicholas Williams from Waterville, Quebec, and a group of visiting Quebecois youth musicians.
Youth musicians (ages 8-20, with or without adults) are invited to perform on Friday, March 31st by submitting a request and short bio to Joanne Garton, fiddler, dancer, and Summit School Board Member, via firstname.lastname@example.org. Sliding scale concert admission tickets bought at the door, $5-$15.
