It’s often said that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Nowhere is this sentiment more evident than at Young Tradition Weekend, where time-honored music and dance take center stage. Two days of old-fashioned fun start off with the Young Folks Doing Old Stuff Conference, where educators get schooled on bringing classic sounds and steps into the classroom. A contra dance at the Shelburne Town Hall caps off Friday’s festivities, giving way to the main event: Saturday’s contest during which acoustic players, singers and dancers vie for prizes and the chance to be featured in future Young Tradition Vermont events. The weekend winds down with an awards reception and concert showcasing Eric George, Addie Herbert and folk duo Cricket Blue (pictured).
