The festival will take place at Church (69 Kilmarnoc St. in Boston, MA) on March 30-31.


Every year, bands from throughout the Northeast come to share their versions of American folk music - their take on a profound tradition - a demonstrative road map on keeping true and pushing forward. Last year, the New England Americana Festival featured 34 New England based acts that played for sold out crowds at Church, a music venue in the Fenway district in Boston. This event has brought the Americana community in New England together--now almost all the acts are teaming up for shows of their own and sharing fans.

The three night event has featured artists such as: The Accident that Lead Me to the World, Jeff Bird and the Dirty Finch Odessa Rose, Bryan Pero and the Tired Horses, Brown Bird, Bean Pickers Union, Jimmy Ryan, The Autumn Hollow Band and many more.



Not unlike folk of all traditions, Americana passes down a history of the experience of a people and holds equal value upon artist as well as audience. The sharing of folk art rests upon the interdependence of audience and artist, sharing in a communal experience - the basis upon which the festival rests.

The 2011 festival will take place in April. Exact dates are coming soon.
