About the 2024 Young Tradition Festival:

The 2024 Young Tradition Festival celebrates young artists and multi-generational relationships in diverse traditional music and dance communities while providing opportunities for youth, families, and the greater community to immerse themselves in several types of traditional music and dance.

This year’s festival includes concerts at Contois Auditorium: World-renowned Nepali Sarangi player Shyam Nepali’s band Himalayan Dreams will perform Friday night, and the well-known Quebecois trad band Genticorum will play Saturday night, with an opening act by the 20 teen performers of the Young Tradition Touring Group. Young musicians and dancers will perform alongside their teachers Saturday morning at the Burlington Farmers Market during our Student/Mentor Showcase. Performances will include Burundian dancing, Folk fiddling, Tibetan singing, Nepali Sarangi, and more. On Sunday all-ages will have an opportunity to join in the fun at a family-friendly jam session and contra dance at Contois Auditorium. The festival’s programming also includes free performances for students at Burlington’s Integrated Arts Academy and residents at the Converse Home.
