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.
