The Richmond Folk Music Society was founded to honor and promote traditional folk music and to support and encourage the artists who perform it. In our hectic, modern world with all its technological innovations and frenzied pace, we believe that it is important to keep a place in our hearts for the old songs, tunes, ballads and instruments that are part of our collective heritage. At our quarterly concerts, co-sponsored and held at Congregation Or-Ami, we provide a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere so that the community might experience superb traditional acoustic music in an intimate setting. We respect all traditions and strive to present a variety of music. We book artists who, in addition to being talented musicians, are well versed, authentic, and true to the style of the traditional music they perform.
The final date on the RFM calendar is a special New Year's Eve party featuring Hawaiian music by the Broad Street Ramblers. Doors open at 7:00 pm with music from 8:00 to 10:00 pm. Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door. Dinner is available for $12, reserve in advance at Eventbrite. Beverages, Desserts and snacks available for purchase. You can also participate in the second annual Or Ami New Year's Eve Silent Auction! Bidding is open now until December 30.
