The 2006 Great Lakes Folk Festival's “Traditions Showcases” feature comparative sessions on the fiddle, accordion, "other" stringed things; plus a session with the Gulf Coast Artists discussing the effect of the Hurricanes on their lives and livelyhood, and a session featuring some of the festival's younger performers discussing what it's like to grow up with music. These showcases illustrate not only cultural similarities and differences, but also the process of change in musical traditions. Every year, showcases are among the Festival's most popular features.
