  1. So sad I just found your site as your weekend is just about over. Will you be keeping a database of interested people for next year, be having any events during the winter, or looking for any sort of volunteers? My Salem ancestor surnames are Winthrop, Dudley, and Bradstreet, who came pretty early and then moved on but I still feel the connection when I drive across town.

      We do have an email list you can sign up for to get updates on next year’s festival! You can sign up here. Next year’s event will be April 29-May 2, 2022. We’re also going to compile a list of recordings from this year’s events that took place virtually that we’ll share on this blog soon!
