Hungarian Heritage Focus of Smithsonian Folklife Festival

From http://www.festival.si.edu/2013/Hungarian_Heritage

The Hungarian Heritage: Roots to Revival program at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival will highlight the vitality of Hungary’s cultural heritage. It will bring to the National Mall in Washington highly skilled masters and apprentices from rural Central Europe who maintain the traditional knowledge acquired in their native environments. The Festival program will also bring musicians, dancers, and artisans from more urban settings who have revived many of these older traditions to make them part of their daily lives.

The Folklife Festival takes place June 26-30 and July 3-7. Learn more about the Hungarian Heritage program at http://www.festival.si.edu/2013/Hungarian_Heritage
