This year’s Traditional Ballad Singing Contest will be held on Friday, March 17th at 8:00 PM at The Beal House, 222 Main St (Rte 106), Kingston, MA.  

Here are the links to the Contest Info and Sign Up Form and the Poster.




No charge for contestants, all others: $7 Members, $8 Non-members, $4 Children.

It’s not too early to start thinking about what ballad to sing!   Make sure your ballad tells a story with a plot and an ending.  Make sure your ballad is so old that nobody knows who wrote it, or make sure your ballad is at least 100 years old.   You must sign up ahead so Contest Organizers Karen Haffner and Lynn Feingold can review your choice of ballad.  Here are the categories for this year:

Grade 4 Through High School

Solo performer WITHOUT instrument $50 cash prize

Solo performer WITH instrument $50 cash prize

Group (2 or more) WITHOUT instrument $100 cash prize
Group (2 or more) WITH instrument(s) $100 cash prize

Solo or group, with/without instrument(s) – $50 cash prize

If you have any questions, contact Karen at or 781-878-1683 or Lynn Feingold at 781-608-7218.
