Not only can you listen to great music from many different cultures at the Great Lakes Folk Festival, you can also make your own music or dance the day away. In 2015 we are currently planning for an old-time jam, community sing, ukulele strum, and more!

Fiddle Workshops

The 2014 Great Lakes Folk Festival will feature nearly 20 fiddlers and many styles of fiddling with an emphasis on the Michigan fiddle.  Come learn about the history and social context of fiddle traditions and compare the many techniques of fiddle playing with us!
