From beginners just learning to love traditional music, to aficionados who have been playing, dancing and listening for years, this fest is sure to engage and entertain. Come to explore the full day of workshops on Saturday afternoon . Come back for an eclectic concert line-up Saturday night. Enjoy all the great restaurants of downtown Euclid in between.
