 Eisteddfod:  A weekend festival of traditional folk music

The Eisteddfod is taking a vacation this year.

[The word “Eisteddfod” is Welsh.  It connotes a gathering of poets and musicians, and there is a large Eisteddfod every year in Wales.  The name was adopted by Howard Glasser, the founder of this festival, when he began these gatherings of singers and musicians over four decades ago.]
