2nd Annual Northeast Fiddlers’ Convention at Hancock Shaker Village

The Northeast Fiddlers’ Convention is a family-friendly, traditionally-inspired old-time and bluegrass music gathering. Nestled in the secluded natural setting of a vast historic Shaker village, participants and appreciators of all levels are invited to jam, listen, compete, learn, pick, dance, and celebrate. Presented by Hancock Shaker Village and Oldtone Productions, this is a rich immersive weekend that preserves the rich old-time music culture on stage, in the barns, by the fields, and under the trees. The perfect weekend to escape daily life and let the music seep in.
