Concerts & Dances

Engaging audiences with the diversity and talent of today’s traditional music and dance performers is a vital component of the Acadia Trad School mission. With a variety of genres and instrumentation held year-round in venues across Down East Maine and beyond, Acadia Trad Concerts showcase both established world-class talent and advanced students that are well on their way to a traditional music or dance career.

While concerts are held year-round, the flagship event is the week-long Acadia Trad Festival. During this week, nightly concerts and dances are offered, featuring many of the top traditional music and dance performances in the world. All concerts and dances are held at College of the Atlantic’s Gates Auditorium.
