Hancock Shaker Village
Musicians and fans alike will jam, listen, compete, learn, pick, dance, and celebrate. Presented in conjunction with Oldtone Productions, this immersive weekend of fun preserves the rich old-time music culture on stage, in our barns, by the fields, and under the trees. It’s the perfect weekend to escape daily life and let the music seep in. This year’s gathering features the Down Hill Strugglers with John Cohen, contests, workshops, a square dance, and admission to the Village. While you’re here, check out our twenty historic buildings, eat a great farm-to-table meal at Seeds Market Cafe, shop at Shaker Mercantile, and join a farm and garden tour, a water turbine demonstration, a Shaker music and dance demonstration, a tour of the historic Round Stone Barn, and a medicinal herb garden talk.
