The Young Tradition Touring Group are teen players, singers and dancers who focus on learning and performing traditional music and dance repertoire over the course of a 9-month, late September through early May session, culminating in an April performance tour. Group members learn from and are supported by artist leaders, visiting master musicians and dancers/dance leaders, in addition to musical exchanges with master artists, young musicians and dancers while on performance tours. Touring Groups have previously traveled to Scotland, Japan, Cape Breton, Northumberland in England, and the West Coast of Ireland.
The 28 talented players, singers, and dancers of the Young Tradition Vermont Touring Group make a stop at NJPAC in a celebration of folk music and dance from around the world. This exuberant performance by teens ages 11 to 19 from throughout the Northeast has been enjoyed by audiences of all ages, here and abroad.
