Live Art Folklife Centerhttp://www.liveartvt.orgSocieties The Live Art Folklife Center of Montpelier, Vermont is dedicated to preserving and promoting distinctive traditional and contemporary folk music, dance, and spoken word, through live performances, workshops, seminars, recordings and publications. Our programs celebrate artistic endeavors and traditions that would not otherwise enjoy widespread recognition, as they arise in our local area and around the world. We believe these activities strengthen the fabric of our communities and enhance our lives. We are currently present folk and acoustic music at the Barre Opera House, in Barre, Vermont and at the Wood Art Gallery in Montpelier, Vermont. We also publish a 20 page newletter which includes commentary on folk music and community life (we welcome submissions on that topic), as well as our seasonal calendar.
