Welcome to the Great Groove Band music page for our 2016 summer programs at Old Songs and Philadelphia Folk Festivals. Our new Groove Band at Heart of the Alleghanies in Titusville PA starts July 8-10. Learn more about this new program.
Old Songs rehearsals are Friday 3:30-5 at the Carriage House/Area 2.
Philly rehearsals are Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10 to 11:50. Please arrive promptly so we can squeeze as much rehearsal time in as possible.
We will not use sheet music on stage. This page is designed to help participants prepare but we review everything at the festival. Even if you missed this download page, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you learn everything by ear at the festival, even the lyrics to the French song!
Save a nice outfit for the Sunday afternoon concert. Bring extra strings and reeds just in case! A music stand is not necessary.
