Welcome

You are visiting the online home of Long Island, New York’s leading all-volunteer, nonprofit presenter of folk and acoustic concerts. The Folk Music Society of Huntington presents two monthly concert series (most concerts are preceded by open mics), a monthly folk jam and sing-along, and an annual folk festival in conjunction with the Huntington Arts Council. Information about these and other events, along with an extensive links section highlighting our members and Acoustic Allies, can be found elsewhere on this website.
————————————————————————————————
The health and safety of our audience members, featured performers and volunteers is of paramount importance to the Folk Music Society of Huntington’s board of directors. In light of the serious public health concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Hard Luck Café and the First Saturday Concerts through May have been cancelled. We will seek to reschedule the artists for future dates.

In the meantime, please follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization, care for each other, and stay home, safe and healthy.

Touring artists, whose music so enriches our lives, are losing considerable income during these challenging times. Please consider supporting them by buying their CDs and other merchandise via their websites. Many artists also are/will be live-streaming concerts online this spring — so follow your favorites on Facebook and check their websites for information.

A number of Facebook groups and pages have been launched that welcome artists and presenters to post their livestreaming concerts and/or information about them. To view a descriptive listing of some new Facebook groups and pages — as well as websites — that include livestreaming concerts, click on the headline or link below:

We will keep you apprised via email and our website (FMSH.org).

Sincerely,

Michael Kornfeld (president)
on behalf of the
Folk Music Society of Huntington
Board of Directors
