40th Old Songs Festival postponed till 2021

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the board of directors of Old Songs Inc. decided this week to postpone the 40th Old Songs Festival to June 25-27, 2021.

“The health and safety of our audience members, performers and volunteers is of paramount importance to us and our events will not resume until it is once again safe to congregate in groups, and the COVID-19 virus no longer poses a health risk,” the board said in a release.

Already-purchased festival tickets will be valid, as is, at the festival in 2021. If anyone would like to donate the amount previously paid to help support Old Songs during this crisis or would like a full or partial refund they may email or call 518-786-2815.

“We are looking to rebook as many of the same artists as possible for 2021, and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy to return to the festival in 2021,” the release said.

“Touring folk artists, whose music so enriches our lives, are facing the loss of considerable income during these challenging times, as are the organizations that present their music,” it continued. “We ask patrons to take the time to support the artists and Old Songs in other ways while community gatherings are suspended.”
