Come Listen With Us!


Come and join us for a full evening of entertainment and socializing. The second Friday Gatherings continue to be a full evening of fun, family friendly events at the Self Help Center/Great Aunt Stella Center in downtown Charlotte, located at 926 Elizabeth Avenue. Food Trucks will open the evening around 5:30, and Bluegrass and Acoustic jams will precede the featured concert at 6:00PM. The Concerts begins at 7:30 PM in the beautiful Sanctuary. After the concert come on down and join us in the Café for Refreshments and connect with folks and others who love good music! Jams will reconvene after the concert, and will include the Singer Songwriters Workshop and the Appalachian Dulcimer Club. There is no cost to attend the Gatherings, although for those who can, we encourage $10.00 per person donation, so that we can meet operational costs. Parking is free.

Our schedule of events is always available here!

Make Your Event Special With Regional Music

The Charlotte Folk Society has extensive resources to help you with your special event or conference, whether you want just a taste of this region’s Appalachian musical heritage or a full evening of music and dance with audience participation.

Some of the ways folks use our network are:

  • Hire an Old Time duet for a wedding
  • Hire a trio of musicians for a birthday party
  • Hire a singer/songwriter for your anniversary

We discuss your needs with you and you make one payment to us. We take care of the rest — lining up the musicians, paying the musicians, etc. E-mail us for more details.

Our earnings from this service helps support the ongoing work of the Folk Society.
