Dedicated to building community through music, dance, art and heritage craft traditions
AlgomaTrad is dedicated to preserving and passing on traditional music, dance, arts and crafts that are part of our Canadian culture and heritage.
Every August since 2004 we have organized the week-long AlgomaTrad Family Music & Dance Camp that offers workshops and concerts in traditional music, dance, art and craft in an inter-generational and family-friendly environment on St. Joseph Island in Ontario (approximately 45-minutes southeast of Sault Ste. Marie).
Throughout the year our family band, The O’Schraves, performs concerts and plays for called dances.
