This is the second year of the event featuring traditional Appalachian folk, bluegrass, hot swing, old-time country, brass, Cajun and contra music.The dates are September 8, 9, 10, & 11, 2016. Hold on to Your Socks, the OLDTONE ROOTS MUSIC FESTIVAL is Going to Blow Them Off!“We are creating a platform for traditional music to be experienced and enjoyed without some of the trappings of larger festivals. Oldtone Roots focuses on preserving the more traditional side of American Roots music through playing, learning, dancing, and singing. The 4-day camping festival will include classes and workshops, formal and informal jams, and contests. The festival celebrates traditional acoustic music with a down-to-earth, inclusive, and welcoming vibe.”- Jim Wright.
The informal motto of the festival is “Participation is Preservation”. The festival will include contra, square, and swing dancing, workshops, classes, and performances on three stages.  Known and respected artists of Old Time Music will be performing and teaching.
The event is an earth friendly family focused camping adventure on the stunning 150 acre Cool Whisper Working Family Farm in Hillsdale, NY. Cool Whisper is owned by Matt and Lisa Schober. Festival attendees will be able to see (from a distance) highland cattle amidst mountain views and rolling fields. Day tickets are also available.
