Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) September 08, 2012
Any roots music lover will tell you that Cambridge, MA has been a breeding ground and focal point of traditional American music for generations. The musicians, venues, and fans from and traveling through Cambridge over the years have paved a way of brotherhood, support, and yes, even a little love for all those who follow.
This is why, without question, New England Americana (http://www.newenglandamericana.com) has eagerly moved their quickly growing annual New England Americana Festival across the river from its former home in Boston.
This year, with Cambridge as its modest host, the New England Americana Festival will take Harvard Square, the heart of the city, by storm. By featuring over 50 local music acts on over 6 stages in 5 different venues around the Square, the New England Americana team is taking this Third Annual 3-day Festival to a completely different level, cementing themselves as a yearly must-see event. Atop the plethora of musical performances, the Festival will be accompanied by local non-profit organizations, raffle prizes, the occasional burlesque performance by local theatre troops, and much more. Festivities start on Thursday and Friday with two stages at the revered Club Oberon. The Festival will continue on Saturday day with a free outdoor stage in Winthrop Park, then move inside to three of the Square’s historic venues: the legendary Club Passim, Tommy Doyle’s (formally the House of Blues), and Charlie’s Kitchen.
