The Richmond Folk Music Society was founded to honor and promote traditional folk music and to support and encourage the artists who perform it. In our hectic, modern world with all its technological innovations and frenzied pace, we believe that it is important to keep a place in our hearts for the old songs, tunes, ballads and instruments that are part of our collective heritage. At our quarterly concerts, co-sponsored and held at Congregation Or-Ami, we provide a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere so that the community might experience superb traditional acoustic music in an intimate setting. We respect all traditions and strive to present a variety of music. We book artists who, in addition to being talented musicians, are well versed, authentic, and true to the style of the traditional music they perform.
Uncle Henry’s Favorites, from Charlottesville, Virginia, are coming to Richmond Folk Music! Pete Vigour, Ellen Vigour, Jim Childress, and Mark Beall have developed their own distinctive blend of fiddle tunes, old country songs, ballads, dances, and skits. Their music is based on 35 years of performance together and jamming with some of the finest traditional artists that Virginia has to offer. Recent performances include the the Gainsborough Old Time Music Festival in England, Mentone Old-Time Music and Dance Weekend in Alabama, the Southwest Pickers festival in New Mexico, and Hillbilly Days in Kentucky. Uncle Henry's Favorites' years of performing, jamming, and teaching, have won them many fans. Come join the fun! Learn more about the band here.
The concert begins at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10, and you can get them today on Eventbrite!
Thanks to everyone who came out to Richmond Folk Music in 2017!
