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.
