building the future
The Folk revival of the 1950's and 60's inspired a generation of singers. We hope to pass on that passion to future generations.
Our events are family friendly!
We strive to give people from different backgrounds a chance to express their unique experiences and struggles.
We believe in creating, not receiving, cultural experiences.
