The Folk Heritage Committee is delighted to announce it will stream past performances of the beloved Shindig on the Green on the days it was originally scheduled for Roger McGuire Green in Pack Square Park.

The dates for the streaming events will continue July 25, Aug. 1, 15, 22, 29, and Sept. 5.

The Folk Heritage Committee has selected over 100 of its “most watched” videos of musicians and dance teams, and on the final Saturday we plan to include some newly created videos.

The performances will air on our YouTube Channel (ShindigontheGreenAVL) and from our Facebook Page (Shindig on the Green and Mountain Dance and Folk Festival). In what we are calling “Shindig on the Green Flashback,” we will begin posting performances starting at 2 p.m. and again every half hour until 9 p.m. on the above dates.

Check out this video to learn how the Shindig on the Green FLASHBACK will take place beginning at 2 p.m. EDT each Saturday through, Sept.  5 with a break on Saturday, Aug. 8, when the Folk Heritage Committee will be airing our Mountain Dance and Folk Festival online.

The performances will help kick off a celebration of the upcoming 93rd season of the Mountain Dance and Folk Festival to be held virtually as well in 2020. The Mountain Dance and Folk Festival showcases the best of the region’s mountain musicians, dancers and storytellers, and these performances will also be streamed on their original dates this year, Aug. 6-8.
