Festival Sampler

In 1983, the Festival featured an auxiliary music stage called the "Festival Sampler" stage. It included performances from the French/French American and New Jersey programs. A small additional group of musicians from the greater Washington, D.C. area were included in these programs featuring blues and Afro Caribbean music. This series also includes documentation of evening concerts held at the Sylvan Theater on the grounds of the Washington Monument, as well as music performed at the Participant Reception on June 28, 1983.
