The Baltimore Old Time Music Festival brings together the brightest Old Time Stringband musicians in the country to celebrate where this vibrant music form exists today and where it’s going. Join host artists Ken & Brad Kolodner along with a dizzying lineup at Creative Alliance for two days of concerts featuring brilliant musicianship and shimmering vocal harmonies, hands-on workshops, jamming, square dancing, conversation and revelry that’s fun for all ages.
The festivities begin Friday night with the kickoff concerts in the Marquee Lounge and Main Theater. All performers will be on hand to perform and share their stellar talents across two stages for what promises to be a magical start to the weekend. Saturday is the main event with a full day of activities including workshops for all skill levels, jamming for newbies and seasoned veterans, performances all day on the lounge and main stages and the legendary square dance to cap off the night. New in 2023, the recently-opened Creativity Center across the street is available to the festival for workshops, jamming and room to spread out. Don’t miss the premier festival for Old Time stringband music held right here in Charm City!
