If you’re in the Plainfield area this weekend, you may hear traditional tunes echoing about. Those ear-catching notes come courtesy of musicians at the inaugural Old Time on the Onion. Presented by the Summit School of Traditional Music & Culture, this gathering of fiddlers and other acoustic players emulates Appalachian bow-and-string conventions. Songsters and their families tune up their instruments for three days of jamming at the picturesque Onion River Campground. Workshops, social time, camping and outdoor adventures — think fishing, swimming, hiking, picnicking and lawn games — are sure to keep music lovers picking and grinning all weekend long.
Price: $15-40; free for kids 18 and under; $30 for hookups.
