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.
Richmond Folk Music is on Hiatus
The ongoing pandemic has affected every aspect of life for all of us. We hope that Richmond Folk Music will be able to resume in 2022, but be assured that your health and the health of our community is of paramount importance to us. We trust that you will support our past artists—and musicians everywhere—by seeking out their music online and on recordings. Stay safe and stay connected!
Thanks to everyone who has supported shows at Richmond Folk Music!
