Boxwood shares and explores the roots and branches of Atlantic Canada's music & dance traditions; connecting the entire community with programs for children, teens, adults, seniors, novices, amateurs and professionals. We bring together an amazing group of artists from across the spectrum of traditional folk (Irish, Scottish, Breton, Cape Breton, French Canadian, Appalachian, Ozark & Old-Time) baroque, and renaissance music & dance for a week of classes, performances, sessions and social dancing. The deep connections between traditional music, song, dance, language and food are at the heart of our program as musicians, dancers and singers alike experience and discover the fire that connects their traditions. The breadth, scope and versatility of this year's group of artists will inspire, astound, and challenge the way you think about music. Join the party with us in Lunenburg!
