It is time again for the annual Old Songs Festival. This year the event features an army of fiddle, banjo, guitar, and flute -wielding folk performers including world renowned Hanneke Cassel (pictured), the National Scottish Fiddle Champion. The three-day celebration of all things relevant to the folk world includes 120 workshops, a juried craft festival, music instrument vendors, and entertainment for children. Camping is available for those who want the whole experience. This year promises even better contradancing thanks to an all-new dance floor. (June 28-30, $135-$45, 100 Main St., Altamont, 765-2815)
