Welcome to The Plank Road Folk Music Society . . .

Where people come together to play, sing and enjoy acoustic music of every kind!

Plank Road is a music club in the western suburbs of Chicago. We have regularly scheduled sessions for our members, where they can participate in sing-arounds, jam sessions, song circles, barn dances and other music events. We encourage participation by everyone who attends — experienced and beginning musicians are all welcome to join in!
