2020 Turtle Hill VIRTUAL Folk Festival

Presented by the Golden Link Folk Singing Society
September 11, 12 and 13, 2020

(Preliminary Festival pages - check back for more details)




Golden Link's on-site 49th Turtle Hill Festival has sadly been cancelled due to Covid-19 concerns.  But we are actively working on putting together a Virtual Turtle Hill on the same dates.  We are anticipating two one hour concerts on each of Friday evening, Saturday evening, and Sunday afternoon or evening.  Details are being worked out.


Stay tuned for further developments and information!

The following are the originally scheduled performers for the On-Site festival.  While we are working with these performers to create our Virtual Festival, it is likely that the lineup will change some from what you see here:



Jack Williams


Jack brings dazzling picking, an outstanding voice, and an ability both to write and to find interesting songs. He has been heralded for bringing a mix of blues, country, jazz, folk-rock, roots, and traditional genres to memorable performances. He will be new to many Turtle Hillers, who will quickly learn why Jack has an enthusiastic following in this area. More ...



Pete's Posse


A multi-generational trio of multi-instrumentalists who offer traditional, American Roots, and what they call “Neo-Traditional Roots.” You’ll hear twin fiddles over high-powered guitar, pounding foot percussion, mandolin, clawhammer banjo, jaw harp, keyboards and excellent vocal harmonies. Pete’s Posse will provide the music for the Saturday afternoon Contra Dance. More ... 


Sheridan Cozy 600px sq

Cosy Sheridan


From the Boston 
Globe: “She is a wonderfully lively, very funny, and enormously amiable entertainer with a keen and wicked eye for the excesses of our fast-food, TV-happy, and noisy culture.” Her writing is terrific, and she often plays in open tunings and with multiple capos. She directs the Moab Folk Camp, Moab, Utah, and is known for her songwriting workshops. More ... 





Brendan Taaffe


From Vermont, his roots are Irish and American Traditions. Having spent time in Africa, he offers a unique way of blending old-time ballads with traditional Zimbabwean hymns. He is an expert on the 
mbira (“thumb piano”). He often uses “crankies”—a Colonial style of scrolling silhouette illustration that is hand-cranked—to accompany songs. More ... 




Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters


The Stillwaters use their strong instrumental and vocal skills with a blend of folk, roots, country, and bluegrass style. Their blend of guitar, resophonic guitar, mandolin, and bass, along with the beauty of Amy’s voice and the strength of their harmonies capture the best of folk and country music. More ... 



Magpie


Magpie are Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner, who began playing and singing together just two years after Golden Link was founded. They are: terrific instrumentalists, excellent singers with excellent harmony, and music historians. They are playwrights, actors, and social activists. Their concerts embody Golden Link’s value of being a folk 
singing society, as they skillfully get audiences singing along. More ...
