As we approach the end of 2021, we bring you music across the ages from around the world, played on a vast array of exotic instruments. Hurdy gurdies and harps rub shoulders with citterns andbouzoukis, hammered dulcimers and even the odd guitar or two.

~~ 2021 schedule: ~~

SATURDAY DECEMBER 4, 7:30 pm Pacific Time
After the surprising (to us!) technical success of our “double duos” shared live stream concert in September, we are going to use that format for the first of two very different Winter’s Return Online Concerts this year:
Three Rivers Folklife Society presents a special, real-time show, mixing live and virtual performances. This fun packed livestream promises to enthrall and entertain, with the added spice of a potential technological disaster as we navigate the wonders of online broadcasting together. The band members will be in two studios 1500 miles apart, so the audience will be treated to duets from the two halves of the band alongside “virtual” performances by the full quartet. Quite literally anything can happen, and probably will. Don’t miss it.
One $15 ticket is good for your entire household.

Links for the concert and the afterparty will be sent out about 24 hours beforehand.

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2 pm Pacific Time: Returning to YouTube for a full concert of virtual performances, somewhat along the lines of our Winter’s Return 2020 concert. This will be a YouTube Premier on
