I want to call attention to a couple of items from this year's program.

The Italian group "Discanto" are coming and will almost certainly be the first time our folk community has heard them. They are from the Abruzzo region on the East (Adriatic)coast of Italy, straight east of Rome. They play and sing a brilliant repertoire of traditional stuff, featuring in particular the "Zampogna" (Italian bagpipes) and powerful, real old style vocal harmony. There are 5 of them and they are a knockout, we are thrilled to have them.

Second, we are pleased to have one of Ireland's finest traditional singers in the person of Len Graham.

John Roberts & Tony Barrand will receive the 2008 Eisteddfod Award for distinguished service (and of course perform in their usual brilliant way). The full staff can be found at www.eisteddfod-ny.org and the program for the weekend will be up on the website soon.

Check it out. . . .pretty tough to beat.

Last year's Eisteddfod was a wonderful experience. I think this year will be even better with the return of Colleen Cleveland, who is a next generation source singer, singing the songs from her grandmother's song book, Len Graham, who rarely travels out of Ireland, and what may be one of the last performances ever by Tony Barrand and John Roberts as a duo.

Seconding the message above, this may be one of the last opportunities to see John and Tony sing together--and also receive the Eisteddfod award for lifetime contributions to traditional music.
This is a great setting--lots of musicians hanging around all weekend, an intimate atmosphere, great enthusiasm.   Everyone who comes to perform wants to come back because they have such a good time.
