About the New Hampshire Folk Festivals:

The first resurrected New Hampshire Folk Festival – an event with that name had previously been held from 1946-1964 – was held at Pat’s Peak Ski Area in Henniker on August 15, 1976. It emerged from the Saturday night coffee houses held at the Open Kitchen, a natural foods restaurant in Concord, which provided a place for area musicians to play. Folks at the Open Kitchen felt it was time that serious consideration be given to musicians in New Hampshire instead of talent from Boston or New York always being showcased. The first festival realized this idea and also served as a fundraiser for the Open Kitchen, which let its space be used for an assortment of community activities, functioning as much as a community center as a restaurant.

The Folk Festival continued on an annual basis at Pat’s Peak until 1980. It then took a hiatus for a couple of years before returning in 1983 in Concord and finally ceasing in 1986.

About the New Hampshire Folk Festival Tapes:

The collection consist of 80 3/4″ tapes of festival performances made during the festivals of 1978-1980 and 1983-1986. They were filmed by various members of the film crew and logged by John Groefrer of Accompany Video Production in Concord, N.H., who donated them to the University of New Hampshire in 1998. Song and tune titles and other footage content comes from his logs, which are often incomplete and contain inaccuracies. Any assistance in providing correct information where there are mistakes or gaps will be gratefully received.

    Belated thanks, Ryan, for your corrections to the set list for the Last Chance String Band’s performance. I made the changes some time ago, but neglected to thank you for the information. Roland Goodbody, Manuscripts Curator

  3. Wilson Lam Says:

    Thanks for listing the info about Hampshire Folk Festival Tapes. I have been searching these for my research.

  4. bill morgan Says:

    This is great, Is there anywhere I can watch the videos of the festival online?

  5. Roland Goodbody Says:

    The 3/4″ tapes have not been transferred to digital format, except for two or three of them. These were done on request and the transfer paid for by the interested party. But at this point there is no plan to make them available online. There are copyright issues on some of the material and we’d have to get the permission of the performers as well.
