Calling all jammers, dancers, and folk music lovers! This fall, Seattle will be hosting its first annual oldtime music festival, at the Latvian Centre in the Northgate neighborhood. All are invited to come experience the rich culture and community of oldtime music!

There is something for everyone, with Friday and Saturday performances followed by square dancing and honky-tonk dancing. Music and dance workshops will take place during the day, along with copious jamming! The Canote Brothers will lead a family dance on Saturday morning. Sunday will finish with a potluck brunch, cabaret performances, and more jams.

Bring your friends and family - we look forward to seeing you all at OGO :)
