The Summer Hoot at Ashokan

notloB Parlour Concerts is on Summer hiatus, so where can one go for notloB-caliber entertainment? Spend three days in the beautiful Catskills at the Ashoken Fiddle and Dance Camp with multi-time notloBBers and good friends Mike+Ruthy, Jay Ungar, Molly Mason, Chris Merenda, Lyn Hardy (and her band, the Cupcakes), their family, the "usual suspects" from Woodstock / Hudson River valley and friends!

The stellar lineup below was current as of a couple days ago but new artists are being added. For example, a local guy named Pete Seeger was added just today.
