Please, save the date for the Folk Society’s annual Holiday Potluck & Jams on Saturday, December 14th. Our year-end celebration takes place again in Langford Hall at Dilworth United Methodist Church, 605 East Boulevard, in the Dilworth Community of Charlotte. The Potluck Dinner begins at 5 PM. Please bring a dish to serve eight or contribute $5 per person towards our expenses. Come at 4 PM for pre-dinner jamming or to join Salem Macknee in a holiday song circle. Alan Davis will lead the old-time jam and Ed Gebauer will lead the Celtic Session. The duo Little Windows (Mark and Julee Glaub Weems) will perform some seasonal songs after dinner. The Potluck is open to the public and you’re invited to bring friends and family.

Joe Kuhlmann at The Evening Muse has generously reserved his stage for a Charlotte Folk Society multi-performer night on Wednesday January 15th.
The Folk Jubilee evening will consist of four 25-minute time slots. The Muse, at 3227 North Davidson Street, opens at 7 PM. Salem MacKnee will host a song circle beginning at 7:30 PM. The first performer/group is up at 8 PM. Admission is a very reasonable $3 per person, for performers and audience alike.
Proceeds will likely go to The Muse's musicians' distress fund, at Joe's discretion.
For a spot on the schedule for the January 15th Folk Jubilee, get in touch with Harry Taylor at 704-335-8494. Performers should be inside the venue one half hour before their gig time — and you MUST be a CFS member to perform.
We hope to make this a regular event, so we invite you to join us to prove its merit!

Pebble in a Pond is a documentary about the Charlotte Folk Society. This program debuted on WTVI on November 22, 2010 and has aired many times since.
Marilyn Meacham Price truly tossed a "pebble in a pond" when she founded the Charlotte Folk (Music) Society in 1982, and the ripples continue ever outward. Supported and nurtured by a succession of volunteers, the organization has not only achieved its mission, but also created a very special community in the process.
