The Plank Road Folk Music Society is dedicated to fostering and promoting traditional and contemporary folk music and dance.

The Plank Road Folk Music Society is a "hands-on" organization. Members are involved in sing-arounds, open mikes, dances, workshops and other events to sing, play, dance and listen to the music that connects us all. Young, old, experienced and beginning musicians share in the common experience.

Sing-arounds and bluegrass jams are favorite events where we sing and play traditional folk and contemporary acoustic music. Bring your instrument, or just come and sing or listen. All levels of experience are welcome.

Barn dances, with music provided by our own String Band, bring folks together to play, dance and listen. Reels, squares, line dances and waltzes provide fun for the whole family.

Plank Road members are active at festivals and present concerts and other events showcasing a wide range of acoustic music. Our members also offer their experience and skills in helping community organizations present a variety of musical events.

Our newsletter, Quarter Notes, is highly regarded in the folk community. Published quarterly, Quarter Notes brings members news and reports of upcoming events and festivals, articles on performing artists, discussions of musical techniques, and a wealth of other information. Quarter Notes is available by mail and on line.

Traditional folk music helps us discover a connection with our roots by bringing to life a song or tune that has been sung and played for 100 years or more. Contemporary folk music by the likes of Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, the Berrymans, Mark Dvorak and many others offers a way to share and document the times of our lives. As we preserve our musical heritage we build continuity with the future. Please join us to enjoy the music and keep our heritage alive.
