Become a Donor and Join the Folk/Roots Revolution

We want to thank all of you in the community who have made FolkWorks possible. Please support our new adventure by becoming a FolkWorks donor. You can become a sustaining donor or a one time donor.

Folk/Roots music is music of the people…

It is Cajun, Irish, Balkan, Turkish, African, American… It is of the street (or bayou or holler or tundra) and it is alive and thriving. From festivals to concert halls, from pubs to living rooms… it is old and new, LIVE or VIRTUAL performed by those inspired to pick up a banjo, a fiddle, an accordion…from heels a’ kickin’ to couples swirlin’…it represents a vibrant alternative to ‘popular’ culture. FolkWorks is committed to keeping these art forms alive and well.

We are a donor-supported, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the myriad folkways that can be found in all corners of the world.

Whether it’s celebrating an age-old melody from a forgotten era or embracing the newest virtuosic talent bending the tradition for a new audience, we hope you will join us on a discovery of both the familiar and the fresh. The journey simply would not be as exciting without you!
