The New Harmony Music Festival kicks off Monday with a Celtic Jam Session at 7 p.m.

This is the third year for the festival in New Harmony, which is organized in conjunction with the New Harmony Music School.

Chris Layer, the festival founder, says he believes filling historical spaces with music brings life to those spaces, making New Harmony an ideal place for the festival.
