We are honored to launch in 2017 a new Guest Artists component to the festival: these are masters of their art forms who represent exemplary commitments to heritage music, popular social dance and music, and traditional arts and folklore. We are honored to present in 2017 (click on the artist’s name to see a preview of what they will bring to TMY):
