2017 Presenters & Performers

NOTSBA’s annual Breakin’ Up Winter retreat is a time we devote to learning from musicians and educators at the backbone of traditional music. Over the years, we’ve had the honor of hanging with some pretty heavy hitters.

Our presenters and performers put together casual workshops, talks and concerts for Breakin’ Up Winter. We get to enjoy their company and maybe gain a little deeper understanding of old-time music and related topics. We attempt to feature artists from Middle Tennessee as well as from other parts of the country so we can study a variety of regional styles. Attendees are treated to awesome concerts and sometimes a way-fun square dance on Saturday night.

Here’s our lineup for Breakin’ Up Winter 2017…
