27th annual New World Festival
Sep 1 @ 12:00 pm – 11:00 pm
27th annual New World Festival @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Celebrate Vermont’s Celtic and French Canadian heritage with traditional—and sometimes not so traditional—music and dance. Each year more than 70 exceptional musicians are drawn from New England, Canada, and the British Isles. Concerts, music and dance workshops, children’s activities, and open dancing unfold on six continuous stages from noon to midnight. Food and drink provided by the area’s finest chefs and breweries. The festival takes place in downtown Randolph, Vermont in Chandler Music Hall and Gallery, in all-weather tents on both sides of Main Street, and in historic Bethany Church. Main Street is closed to traffic, and the festival site becomes an intimate pedestrian village.

We are delighted to announce the New World Festival premieres of two young award-winning groups, É.T.É. and Spintuition. Three young musicians with varied musical backgrounds unite their creative and artistic forces to form the group É.T.É. that offers a dynamic and modern vision of Québec traditional music. They were awarded “Discovery of the Year 2017-2018” at the Gala des PRIX Opus.

Spintuitionis a New England band that blends creativity and tradition into tight harmony and joyous rhythms. These young musicians have crafted a compelling mixture of spicy new tunes and glorious old favorites in the styles of trad-Irish, French-Canadian, and Old Time. In 2019, the band tied for first place in the Young Traditions Vermont contest in Burlington.

John Doyle fans will be happy to hear that he’ll be back, this year with Solas accordionist Mick McAuley and Oisín McAuley of the Irish group Danú.

Yann Falquet, Pascal Gemme, and Nicholas Williams bring their intricate fiddle, flute and accordion work, gorgeous vocal harmonies, energetic foot percussion and guitar accompaniment to the festival. Over the past 18 years the trad Québécois group Genticorum has become a fixture on the international world, trad, folk and Celtic music circuit. The band’s six albums met with critical acclaim in Canada, the United States and Europe, assuring the band a brilliant future. Known for its energy and its stage presence, Genticorum has given more than a 1000 concerts in more than 15 countries.
