4th Annual Bates Folk Music Festival
a weekend of young New England talent at Bates College!
Organized by the Freewill Folk Society
Vocal, fiddle, and guitar workshops will be held throughout. See the workshop page for more information.
This event is FREE for Bates students!
General admission: purchase at door. Admission is on a sliding scale:
We don't want price to be a barrier to participation, and nobody will be turned away for inability to pay.
Special thanks to Bates College for the generous funding that made this event possible!
