  • Group Overview

  • The Festival strives to present the very finest traditional artists. In making its selections, a local programming committee is guided by the following definition of Folk and Traditional Arts, which also guides the National Council for Traditional Arts, the National Folk Festival, and the definition's author, the National Endowment for the Arts.

    FOLK & TRADITIONAL ARTS The folk and traditional arts are rooted in and reflective of the cultural life of a community. Community members may share a common ethnic heritage, language, religion, occupation, or geographic region. These vital and constantly reinvigorated artistic traditions are shaped by values and standards of excellence that are passed from generation to generation, most often within family and community, through demonstration, conversation, and practice. Genres of artistic activity include, but are not limited to, music, dance, crafts, and oral expression. (NEA)
