From: Jon Bartlett
Date: 23 Mar 14 - 11:01 PM

The dates for this year's festival are 15-17 August 2014. We sure hope to welcome a bunch of Mudcat traditional enthusiasts. Performers: the application form is on the web at princetontraditional.org.

Date: August 15-17
Title: 7th Annual Princeton Traditional Music Festival
Location: Princeton, BC Canada. Princeton is about 300 km (200 miles) E of Vancouver (about a three-hour drive through spectacular landscape).

A free festival, open to all performers of traditional music. Two outdoor, two indoor stages. The festival starts Friday night with a free public dance in the town square. Presentations, workshops, concerts, panels, from 10am to 6 pm Saturday and Sunday. About 100 performers. Glorious countryside (semi-desert, mountains), an ideal vacation spot, too.

Email: Princetonfestival@telus.net
Weblog: Princetontraditional.org

This year we are pleased as punch to present Jeff Warner and Bruce McIntyre from Portsmouth, NH. Joining them will be we hope THREE Roma bands from the northwest, the usual Irish suspects, a bellydancer with an Arabic band, shantysingers, uillean pipers, at last one Morris side and... and...

Cheers!

Jon Bartlett
Coordinator

An amazing festival.   The highlight for musicians especially is the amazing jam sessions that take place at the Saturday night party.

Yea, a fine group indeed!

There are of course financial constraints. Our festival is entirely free: no-one (including the performers) is paid. We subsist on grants, ad sales and donations. We accommodate our performers in a campsite or through billets, we feed them all at local restaurants, and we manage most years to give them a bit of travel money - but that's it.

professional performers have to give up a weekend of potential paying gigs to come to the Festival, and that's a measure of our success, that so many are willing to do that. We can hope that groups as fine as COIG can come visit us if it fits timewise into a paying BC tour.

I wish I were able to attend this year, but it conflicts with my jazz swing camp in Sorrento.

It's a great festival-------and one that totally maintains it's integrity every year.   

If you've never been there and have any chance at all to attend, don't miss it.

I've been working on a new web site for the PTMF in the last few days and it's ready for public consumption. I must admit that I stole some of the code, since I can't write php, but I got the html under control (I think). I dumped the old forum which wasn't really needed since there is this wonderful Mudcat forum here which seems to cover most of the community anyway.

I put the Disqus commenting system on the side for the few who wish to have a public conversation. For easy e-mail access, I added a comment form that just needs to be clicked. Anyway, thanks for the opportunity to post here. Have a look: PTMF web site.

There's a Greyhound bus. See links and info on the Festival site. (scroll down to "getting there")

I'm not sure about organizing rides from Vancouver, but it sounds like a great idea. Try a message on the page above. Also, you got me thinking about this, would it be useful to have a page on the site for this purpose? I'm not sure what I could do, but I'm willing to set something up. If I get an e-mail or two about this then I could say on the site that someone is looking to ride share from Van, or Seattle for that matter. Perhaps the Festival Committee needs to have a "ride coordinator" position.

The performer's bios are up on the site (see above) and the schedule will follow in a couple of days. We'll look into the "ride coordinator" at the next Festival meeting.

In regards to mg's earlier request for carpooling, I've posted the following on the PTMF web site:

We encourage people to carpool and share rides to come here. For people in Vancouver, and even Seattle, this can be a way to share gas costs, help the environment, and perhaps even make it possible for someone to come who could not otherwise afford it. If you have extra space in your car and would like to be helpful in this regard, please send a note to ride@princetontraditional.org and we will try to coordinate people. Those offering a ride will be given the e-mail address of those needing one. There is no obligation to PTMF and you make your own decisions and arrangements.
