Heart of the Alleghenies Music Festival Attraction Details
Heart of the Alleghenies Music Festival
The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will host the Third Annual Heart of the Alleghenies Folk Music Festival from August 11-13, 2006. Festival attendees will have an opportunity to attend instructional workshops, dances, and open jam sessions featuring Old time, Bluegrass, Dulcimer, Autoharp, French-Canadian, Irish, and World folk music in an informal college setting. Activities will begin on Friday evening with a concert featuring workshop instructors, followed by a contra dance in Swarts Hall's O'Kain Auditorium. Saturday's activities will include workshops in the morning and afternoon. Workshops will cover topics like "Fiddle from Scratch" or "The Dynamics of a Home Schooled Bluegrass family band". These workshops (for all skill levels) will be held in the Frame-Westerberg Commons. An Instrument Exchange will give festival attendees an opportunity to buy, sell, or swap used instruments. This will take place in the Mukiyama University Room all day Saturday. Organized and spontaneous open jam sessions will be happening on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday night will feature a concert headlined by award-winning Pennsylvania folk duo Simple Gifts and an amazingly talented Bluegrass family from Western New York, The Doerfels. The concert will be followed by a contra dance. Both events will be held in O'Kain Auditorium and are open to the public, cost is $10. The University will be providing a unique and relaxing environment for the festival. Camping, Housing and Meals will be available at a very reasonable cost, all workshop, vendor and dance areas are air conditioned, and hotel-style rooms come with hi-speed Internet access. All activities, housing and food will be held in very close proximity to each other. The festival will conclude on Sunday with a gospel jam, a morning workshop session and an open stage. The cost for all weekend events is $50, including all workshops (housing and meals not included).
