Email Announcements

We send out email announcements to anyone that "opts in" to our list, with info on upcoming events and news on the Plank Road Folk Scene. We control spam, and you can opt out whenever you want. You should expect to get two to three emails per month. (This is currently under construction, so check back soon for the link to sign up.)

Chat Group

We support a chat group at Yahoo groups. This free-form chat allows folk enthusiasts to chat among among yourselves about anything from strings, to concerts, to jam sessions, to song lyrics. This is a great ad hoc way to stay connected. Click here to join.
