the sheep barn humming with the sound
of shape-note singing.
That's folk music, people's music, being
together, standing together.
Joseph Campbell said,
'All we want is to be completely human
and in each other's company.'
That's Old Songs."
--Utah Phillips

2013

The buzz is building and ticket orders are streaming in! We think this year's lineup is especially steller and we're having a fun time pairing up artists and planning our usual way-too-much-good-stuff-to-choose-from daytime schedule.

buy tickets Plus we have some very good to news to share, especially for those of you can't keep your feet still. This year we are able to rent a wooden floor for the Dance Building! Dancers have been begging for this for years, as a springy wooden floor is far easier on the feet and knees and makes for a more pleasurable dancing experience. We've looked into the cost of building and storing such a floor in the past, and the costs proved to be prohibitive. However, we are now able to rent from the same outfit who has been providing flooring for the Flurry Festival in Saratoga. (accompanying photo courtesy of Rob Cohen was taken at the 2012 Flurry)

So start your summer off right! Make your plans now to meet us at the Altamont Fairgrounds this June!

Old Songs Festival
June 28, 29 & 30, 2013
Altamont Fairgrounds, Altamont, NY

the best in folk, Celtic and world music • TICKETS on sale NOW!
