In times like these, nothing soothes the soul and lifts the spirit more than music of the people. Music, dance, laughter, and sharing good times and good food with old friends and new, these are the joyful bonds that have always kept folks around the world together when it looked like everything else was falling apart. This is the “folk power” celebrated and perpetuated by FolkWorks.
FolkWorks is presenting a day long Folk/Roots Festival on March 24, 2018, an opportunity to experience the culture of other countries…and our own; an opportunity to experience the healing power of music…and learn the pleasure of playing and dancing and eating together.
● 70+ artists – Sausage Grinder, Nevenka, Yuval Ron Trio, Complicated Animals, Baklava Ensemble, Cambalache, Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble, Echo Mountain, Amaro Lumiyo, TheZband, more TBA

But a festival cannot exist in a vacuum. To survive and thrive it needs nurturing and support. And that’s where you come in. To successfully produce this Festival, FolkWorks depends on your generosity. 100% of the money we raise in this campaign will go to pay talented performers and teachers. Please donate what you can to allow us to present the best diverse musical traditions for this amazing event.
