We are dedicated to promoting the ongoing enjoyment and preservation of traditional and contemporary folk music, dance, crafts, and lore in the Carolinas Piedmont since 1982.
When you join the Charlotte Folk Society, you become part of a rich and vibrant folk tradition that spans continents and centuries and lives on in the musicians that perform on our stage every month.
Make A Donation
In addition to your annual membership, please consider making an additional gift of either $100.00+ to become a Sponsor or $300+ to become a Patron. As you can see on page 3 of this newsletter, many members already make additional contributions at these levels to support our mission. We now also have enough members who make major gifts each year that we are adding a new recognition level for gifts of $1,000.00 and above: the Founder’s Circle. Finally, we want all members to know that we are able to accept bequests. Members who wish to leave a gift to CFS through their estate plan will be recognized as Legacy Circle donors. You will be hearing about recognition for these levels more in the months to come.
Every weekend, jam groups in a variety of genres from bluegrass to old time to Celtic gather together to participate in a vibrant and living tradition of song. Beginners and experienced players alike can find their place in the circle.
