November 12-13, 2021 - Creative Alliance, Baltimore, MD
Creative Alliance convenes some of the brightest old time musicians, singers, and dancers in the country to celebrate where this music exists today. Join host artists Ken & Brad Kolodner for the Baltimore Old Time Music Festival! On Friday night, Ken and Brad welcome a dizzying lineup of musicians for two days of brilliant musicianship, shimmering vocal harmonies, and hot flatfoot dance. Saturday is packed with hands-on workshops from many of our headline performers, intimate performances in the Marquee Lounge, afternoon concerts in the theater and a wild square dance to close out the festival on Saturday night. See you there?
