What is FOLK MUSIC? I always like to say "Music that FOLKS play", but that doesn't always work for people. Basically, what I think of is a few people on a porch, in a village or common area playing, singing & dancing to their own ethnic traditional music. Singing songs that they know by heart, passed down from others before them. Follow this link for a great little explanation for kids, I really think that this sums it up without being overly technical. ~ Jan Crumpley

At all of our events, we support the Food Bank of Delaware. Please bring a non-perishable food donation to help the Food Bank of Delaware eliminate hunger in our area.
Bring goods to our upcoming Coffee House and receive a free ticket to a future Coffee House performance! The Food Bank needs not only non-perishable food, but also new (in a sealed package) personal care items that are not covered by food stamps.
