Save the date! In celebration of our 50th anniversary, we and a bunch of other organizations are hosting TradMad Camp at Pinewoods Camp in Massachusetts, 29 August – 4 September 2015. Historical note: it was after attending Folk Music Week, run by CDSS at Pinewoods Camp, that people got together and founded our society. This event will feature singers, musicians, and dancers, with plenty of opportunities for everyone to sing, dance, and jam. We are happy to report that the camp is sold out, but you can join the waitlist — details are on the website.
