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.
Ticket sales cover only the musician fees representing roughly half of the total festival cost. The festival must also pay for the underlying infrastructure — advertising, sound reinforcement services, tent and toilet rentals, liability insurance, communication, signage, and myriad other expenses necessary to make the festival succeed.
In order for the Peacham Acoustic Music Festival to continue as a vital part of Peacham and the Northeast Kingdom, we ask that you make a donation to help us meet our event costs. PAMFest brings people from all over Vermont and New England into the Northeast Kingdom and helps showcase our quality of culture and hospitality — it is an event truly worthy of your support!
