Celebrating 40 years (1977–2017)
From our humble beginnings in 1977, starting with a mountain dulcimer class and three concerts, one of which was Nowell Sing We Clear, Old Songs has maintained a clear and positive mission in the Capital District community: to present traditional music and dance in concerts, community dances, festivals and educational programs. We have provided a way of networking for musicians, singers, patrons and teachers. For 26 years we floated around in different venues; finally in 2003 we bought our own building at 37 S Main in Voorheesville, NY.
“Song bricks” for our entrance walk were sold to raise money for our building restoration. Recently a sizable donation allowed us to renovate the current walkway so we could add the 50 song bricks waiting patiently in the hallway and sell more to support ongoing building upkeep.
Our annual fund appeal supports our concerts, community dances, classes, festivals and other educational events such as our “hidden history” concerts. We ask for your support of whatever you feel comfortable giving. If you prefer to purchase a song brick, your money will help our capital fund to keep our building safe, warm, or cool as the case may be. Either way don’t be a stranger and join us in 2017.
