NEA National Heritage Fellows Concert

Friday, September 27, 2013 - 20:00

For one night each year, the National Endowment for the Arts invites the recipients of the nation's highest honor in the folk and traditional arts to share their art forms with the public at the NEA National Heritage Fellowships Concert, which also is streamed live. The 2013 concert will be held on Friday, September 27, 2013 at 8 p.m. EDT, and will feature art forms as diverse as Irish fiddling, traditional gypsy music, and Native American storytelling, among others. Nick Spitzer, host of public radio’s American Routes, will emcee this evening of conversations, demonstrations, and performances. The recipients also will be honored in an awards ceremony on Wednesday, September 25 at 5 p.m. EDT at the Library of Congress. Both events are open to the public and managed by the National Council for the Traditional Arts.
