So, what will you hear at our Folk Music Night? You'll hear local talent performing traditional folk songs, as well as songs written by such singer/songwriters as Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Browne, Tom Paxton, Harry Chapin, Paul Simon, James Taylor, John Denver, John Prine, Joni Mitchell, and Laura Nyro. You'll probably argue that some of what you hear isn't really folk music, and you'll be right! (For example, songs from the Beatles and the Everly Brothers.) You'll also hear original compositions performed by the up-and-coming local artists who have written them. You'll hear music performed on guitar, piano, bass guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, mountain (lap) dulcimer, flute, harmonica, ukulele, autoharp, recorder, trumpet, tambourine, maracas, harp, tibetan singing bowls, and maybe even a "harp guitar". You might even hear yourself singing along. So, try us out. You'll be glad you did!
