Boxwood Canada

Our Flagship Festival - BOXWOOD CANADA

Registration for our 2018 Festival is now open!

Join us in beautiful Lunenburg, Nova Scotia to discover music, ballad, and dance traditions amid one of North America's most exquisite 18th century seaside towns. Boxwood presents a full range of immersive sessions with world renowned artists in the realms of traditional folk, early music, and dance. The flute is center stage along with a myriad of other instruments, song and dance.

Boxwood will inspire the creative spirit of every participant with its concerts, dances, sessions, hands on sessions, and talks along with handmade local food in the heart of Nova Scotia's beautiful South Shore. The Boxwood experience brings together kindred spirits from all over the world, creating lasting friendships, nourishing music, and soulful fun in a unique, non-competitive program.

Boxwood's Philosophy - from director Chris Norman:

Boxwood exists to create a richer and stronger community through our programming and to promote artistic exellence. We share and explore the roots and branches of Atlantic Canada's music & dance traditions; connecting the entire community with programs for children, teens, adults, seniors, novices, amateurs and professionals. We look forward to you joining us!
