GottaGetGon Folk Music Festival

Festival Details - "GottaGetGon Folk Music Festival"...

Start: Friday, September 2, 2022 9:00AM
End: Monday, September 5, 2022 2:00PM

The GottaGetGon is a family-friendly folk music festival put on by volunteers of the Pickin' and Singin' Gatherin' (PSG) every year since 1970. This year will mark our 50th Anniversary. We welcome adults, teens, and children to enjoy a weekend sharing music and friendship. It is hosted and attended by members of the local folk music community and is open to the public. In 2019 our festival was honored for “Best Live Festival - Small Format” at the 1st Annual Eddie Awards.

Sadly, Covid has prevented us from holding this event for the past two years and we are very glad to be back again in 2022. We will be following current CDC guidelines for mask-wearing.

The festival will run all day Fri, Sat, and Sun - Sept 2nd - 4th. Campers may arrive evening of Thursday, Sept.1st and must depart by noon on Monday, Sept. 5th.

There are workshops and concerts from about 10:00 a. m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and on Saturday evening there is a big family dance in the 4H Barn. We also have a capella sings and informal campground music all through the weekend.


With the exception of camping, it's all under cover so don't worry about rain.
Our Four headliners this year are:
Piedmont Bluz - Ambassadors of Country Blues music and the Piedmont style of fingerpicking.
Saro Lynch-Thomason - A ballad singer, folklorist, illustrator, author and social activist from Asheville, NC.
Coracree - The band melds a transatlantic mix of traditional Celtic, Old-time, European, and original music with a playful, improvisational style.
Alex Cumming - A traditional Singer, Accordionist, Pianist and dance caller hailing from Somerset, England, now living in Greater Boston, MA.
