The Flanders Award for Traditional Vermont Music provides a stipend to a Vermont musician aged 15-29 to support the perpetuation and performance of the traditional Yankee and Franco-American musical repertoire of the state.
Award funds offset the cost of travel to one or more Vermont archival repositories so the recipient can work in person with collections of field recordings, manuscripts and rare books of vocal song or instrumental music rooted in the cultural heritage of the state.
Award funds also serve to encourage learning and rehearsal of songs/music as well as basic research into the history, social context and/or performance of the selected materials.
The 2018 application deadline is October 22. Please contact Andy with any questions.
