Every year we put out a call for application to play at the Festival. Acts are chosen on a first come first served basis, but if you missed the boat please don't hesitate to put in your application next year - hopefully a little earlier as we do get more applications than we have space for. Still, nothing is completely fixed until show time as there is always the possibility of a last minute cancellation.


For those of you new to the Festival please note that we do not pay performers but do offer meals and accommodation and some travel reimbursement. The Festival is devoted to traditional music – contemporary folk and bluegrass are outside our mandate.

Applications for the 2019 festival are now closed. 

Applications for the 2020 festival will open Jan. 1, 2020.

Next year's festival will run August 14-16, 2020.

The deadline for applications is April 30, 2020. 

When applications reopen you will be able to download a pdf below, fill it in, and mail it to us at this address. Or scan and e-mail to
