Dedicated to promoting the ongoing enjoyment and preservation
of traditional and contemporary folk music, dance, crafts and lore in the North and South Carolinas Piedmont area.
Tom is past president of the Charlotte Folk Society and plays banjo with the Kollard Kings, a group dedicated to the music recorded in Charlotte during the 1930s.
The names of the performers who recorded in Charlotte during its short recording history reads like the roster of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Each tune, each group, and each musician had their own fascinating story. In the next few months, Tom will share some of the most intriguing and remarkable tales associated with the Charlotte sessions.

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.
