Mid-Winter Singing and Folk Festival Mid-Winter Singing and Folk Festival Singing Workshops Free Children's Concert

The 2022 Mid-Winter Singing Festival has been cancelled. 

Out of an abundance of caution due to the rapidly spreading Omicron variant of the Covid-19 virus, the Ten Pound Fiddle board of directors, producers of the Singing Festival, voted unanimously to postpone all weekly concerts through early March 2022. 

Sadly, this includes the 19th Mid-Winter Singing Festival, previously scheduled for February 4-5, 2022.

The 19th Mid-Winter Singing Festival, now scheduled for Feb. 3-4, 2023, will feature these same stellar song leaders: Baltimore's Lea Gilmore, Chicago's Mark Dvorak and Michigan's own Joel Mabus. 

Mark your calendars! We'll see, and hear you next year!
