Program Description

You mean you’ve never been to a folk festival? You’ve never eaten too much Indian, Hungarian, Latvian, and Indonesian food all in one afternoon? You’ve never danced a contra dance with several thousand other people? Then you won’t want to miss it when Micahel Ambrosino’s Show visits the 26th Annual New England Folk Festival. There’s lots of colorful costumes and music as we sample all kind of food; glance at such rare crafts as Ukrainian egg painting; watch Greek, Scottish, and Turkish dances.
