Old Songs Festival Saunters Into New York

Posted: Jul. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

For the 33rd year, the Old Songs Festival will bring the very best selection of folk song and dance to the Altamont Fairgrounds in New York'. A hot summer festival that promises to delight, the Old Songs Festival is set to feature performers like Hanneke Cassel, Claire Linch and Osin Macdiarmada in an array of folk music you can't find anywhere else.

Around New York there are some fine choices for some great music this coming weekend.

For those of you who are hankering for a very eclectic selection of roots-oriented folk music and dance non-stop over the weekend, aim for the Albany area for the 33rd annual Old Songs Festival (www.oldsongs.org/festival) at the Altamont Fairgrounds.

This is very intimate festival that still harvests a great crop of entertainers with varied backgrounds and places of origin, though I’m usually on the lookout for the Celtic genre myself and there is plenty on tap this year.
