The 2021 Old Songs Festival is going VIRTUAL

We’d all love to be together this year, but the question of when we can gather in person again is still uncertain. The health and safety of our audience members, volunteers, and artists is of paramount importance to Old Songs. So, we will have a festival, but you won’t have to travel — you’ll be able to join us from home or wherever you happen to be at the time! Watch for details over the coming months about the virtual festival and how to join in the fun. Music, Dance, learn hows, Great Groove Band, and so much more. So, save the date — June 25-27, 2021.

We hope to be able to start up in-person concerts, classes, jam sessions and more in the not-too-distant future, and we are of course looking forward gathering in-person for the 40th Old Songs Festival, June 24–26, 2022. If you have tickets for the in-person festival that were rolled over from last year, you may once again roll them over to 2022, request a refund, or let us know if you would like to use them as a donation to Old Songs by emailing us or leaving us a message at 518-765-2815.
