And finally, the Great Migration – the exodus of African Americans from the South to the industrialized cities of the Northeast, Midwest and West from 1917 into the 1970s. With performances of bluegrass, old time, klezmer, Yiddish musical theater, blues, jazz, and more, the festival will celebrate the American musical traditions that flourished as a result – March 9 – April 15
