News from your NEOMHA Family

It's been quite a year...

This has been a creative year of connecting and bringing great music to the community. Thank you to everyone who came out for a concert during our Old Music for a New World Series, joined an online conversation during one of our Folk Community Summits, engaged with an artist through our Carry On program, or kept in touch with us in any number of ways. We appreciate you!

We’re hard at work planning for 2022 and excited to have some new possibilities for workshops, performances and jams in the coming year. Watch this space for more information!

For now, we just want to wish everyone in our wonderful traditional music community the very best of the holidays, and good things in the year to come. We are stronger together, and we are so glad to still be in community with all of you, through these challenging times.
