BalFolk 2016! is a new weekend event that will focus on the dance and music of the European BalFolk scene. This year we are starting off with music and dance from central France. The event is sponsored by TTU’s Vernacular Music Center and the Roots Music Institute.
It takes place between Friday evening July 29th and midday on Sunday the 31st. Classes will run all day Saturday with a big BalFolk dance that evening, with classes resuming for a half day on Sunday. Since Lubbock is only 5 hours from Albuquerque the event is easily accessible. Lodging is available in numerous area hotels.
