Peacham Acoustic Music Festival
Peacham is nestled in the corner of Vermont known as the Northeast Kingdom. It is a land of pastoral beauty and gently rolling hills. There are many summertime diversions with lakes and streams for fishing, boating and swimming; the 20 miles of the Peacham Pathways trail system and miles of bikeable roads. There is a wonderful mix of the old and new – a lifescape as rooted in New England traditions as the very hills themselves, and yet a place that fosters and inspires independance, creativity and individuality.
The Peacham Acoustic Music Festival is also a blend of the old and the new – roots music from the Celtic traditions, old time fiddle tunes, and a touch of blues and bluegrass – not to mention The Dance!! We are kicking off our inaugural year with the very finest in local and national talent – check out our Performers page for the who’s who of the people that will lead our concerts, workshops, jam sessions and dance! Take a look at the Schedule page and start planning how to ration out your time over the weekend. A popular event that challenges the creative soul of musicians of every ability level is the Band Scramble. Throw your name in the hat and get thrown together with 3 or 4 other adventurous souls to put together a song or two for presentation during the Saturday Afternoon concert.
Note that the festival is on – rain or shine – the dance and concert venues are indoors and if the weather fails to cooperate, we will move the Craft Fair and associated entertainment into the gym.
