jane2“Playing with Jane is always a blast. Her distinctive tone and rhythmic sensibilities are totally infectious.” – Andrew Van Norstrand

Jane Rothfield has been playing music since she was a child, and her repertoire of tunes and recorded albums encompass not only old-time and bluegrass, but Irish, Celtic and Scottish playing styles, as well. Her latest original recordings blend these traditional styles into her own unique sound. A talented and experienced music teacher, Jane has taught workshops and camps around the world. She is the creator and director of the unique and popular music camp, Janie’s Jumpstart.

This instructional workshop will be tailored to the participants’ needs and educational desires. Bring your fiddle! Located at the Coffee Barn.


Clogging with The Green Grass Cloggers, Saturday 11:45am

Inspired by traditional mountain-style clogging teams, but more influenced by older flatfootggc_78 and buck dancers, North Carolina’s premier clogging group has been kicking up their collective heels for over forty years, and together have developed an original, eclectic style. Unlike the traditional “big-set” mountain square dance figures, they use choreography based on four-couple western square dance figures in short energetic routines. Stop by and learn some basic clogging steps and more advanced moves, as well.  Located in the Dance Tent.
