Philadelphia Folksong Society

The Philadelphia Folksong Society provides programs dedicated to preserving, promoting, and securing the legacy of folk music and related forms of expression. The Folk Festival is our largest fundraiser, allowing us to present, underwrite, and promote a wide variety of activities, such as our Odyssey of American Music. This unique outreach program places outstanding folk performers into classrooms and assemblies in public, parochial, and private schools throughout the area, free of charge to the school.  With many school districts facing historic budget cuts, the first line item to be slashed is the one to provide music and art to students.
