First Friday for Folk Music, Friday, October 4  Tonight’s performance features a solo set by Michael Corbett followed Seldom Sober where Michael is joined by Colleen Settle on fiddle. In both sets, they’ll step away from their usual Irish music and play their American favorites accompanied by Johnnie Kennedy on his double bass.

Contra Dance Saturday night, October 19, for a very special dance opportunity! We’ll be dancing to the incredibly energizing, “electrified acoustic” music of Contra Force – a regionally acclaimed band based in Charleston.  All that fun in a downtown space with plenty of free parking. Spins and Grins, plus concert-level, Celtic-based music.  

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.
