2013 Northeast Folk Music Festivals and Dance Camps

Like march tree sap, information about the northeast's dance and music camps and festivals is starting to flow. As it reaches me I update the NEFolk's Festival and Camp Database with basic elements (what, when, where, URL, etc.) and, being a resource, not a service, invite the festival/camp publicist to themselves post complete information to NEFolk's 650 members.

The database has been updated with basic information about:
Start Date End DateFestival / Camp Name

If you are involved with a festival/camp yourself, please submit 2013 information at http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/NEFolk/ or by email to NEFolk@yahoogroups.com
If you are a festival/camp fan and want it to attract other patrons, please inform its management of this free service.

About the database: The database, updated 2-3x/ month, lists close to 200 NE festivals and camps. Please send comments and corrections by email to NEFolk-owner@yahoogroups.com All festivals/camps with dates contain current year information; "99" in the day field indicates either no information could be found or the producer has yet to submit to NEFolk current year information. Please encourage festival and camp producers/publicists to share information via email to NEFolk@yahoogroups.com; one of the moderators will update the database. The table was developed over several years by J. Boudreau and cannot be used for commercial or other purposes without permission.
