Live in-person First Friday concerts return October 1, 2021

To keep our community safe: Spaced-out seating; Masks are required due to Chatham’s Covid-19 transmission rates, Savannah mandates, and CDC guidance.

First Friday for Folk Music, Friday, October 1, 2021. 7:30-9:30 pm.  

Charles Maring, a Savannahian these days, flavors his superb songwriting with his life experiences growing up in the South (Carolinas to Texas) and honing skills in the Big Apple. An artist of many talents (photography, painting, animation, as well as music), Charles’ classic Americana style weaves folk, country and rock influences.

Jan Spillane, no stranger to FFFM, will bring along some as-yet-unnamed Friends, to further flesh out her energetic and unique blues-based blend of folk, pop, country, and jazz. Georgia Music Magazine called Jan “a lyrical acrobat”.

We encourage you to Join or Renew membership! Your Savannah Folk Music Society has been paying our First Friday performers (performing on FaceBook) for over a year with only occasional donations (we THANK you! You know who you are.). So now, PEASE RENEW if you haven’t already done so.

Contra Dances, Saturdays, 2021.  Still CANCELED, unfortunately.

Our socially close and aerobic contra dances must remain canceled due to continued efforts to defeat the spread of Covid-19.  We continue to invite  you to dance as if no one is watching.

Who We Are
We are a society of music makers, appreciative listeners, and dancers.
We provide year-round, affordable access to acoustic music and dance, benefiting the greater Savannah community.
We define “Folk Music” broadly,
ranging from blues to bluegrass, from world music to country, from traditional to contemporary, from front porches to modern stages.
It’s “Roots Music”: playful, relaxing, thought-provoking and down-to-earth.
Some tunes are centuries old, others written yesterday. It’s acoustic, and often fun to sing along with, or to dance to.
