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.
Please join us for our first concert of the season as we welcome Tara Mills and Jimmie Stelling to our stage on March 18 at Congregation Or Ami. Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rich musical traditions tied to them, Tara Mills describes her music as, "original mountain Americana." Influenced by bluegrass, old country, and traditional mountain folk, she creates an original sound that captures true human feeling and deep emotion. Tara will be appearing with Tennessee native and master banjoist Jimmy Stelling. You can learn more about Tara and Jimmy here at their website and order your tickets at Eventbrite!
Thanks to everyone who came out to see the Sunny Mountain Serenaders, Andrew Alli and Josh Small, Rumput, and the Broad Street Ramblers in 2016!
