2010 Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival to be Held at Lake Farm County Park,

August 6th and 7th

Dane County Parks will again play host to the 7th Annual Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival at Lake Farm County Park on August 6th and 7th.  Presented by the Four Lakes Traditional Music Collective, the Festival is a two-day outdoor festival in Madison that celebrates traditional music and dance through performances, educational workshops, and interactive jam sessions. This family-friendly festival offers a diversity of performances, inviting people of all backgrounds and ages to enjoy and learn about the performing arts in the beautiful setting of Lake Farm County Park.

Performances, workshops, and jams are held concurrently at three stages. Formal performances take place on the main stage. Artists hold educational workshops and jams in a more intimate setting on the Roots and Reasons stage. This stage provides an unique opportunity for festival attendees to interact with the artists through interviews, discussions, workshops, demonstrations, and interactive jam sessions. Interviews with performers allow festival attendees to learn about the history, culture, and techniques of the traditional arts. Workshops, demonstrations, and jam sessions provide Dane County residents an opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills of these artists into to our own community.
