Join Us!

Come join the Folklore Society and help plan our yearly festival!  We meet every Wednesday evening during the academic year in Ida Noyes Hall.  Our office is on the lower level, in room 030.  We discuss music and bands, plan logistics, and in general have a lot of fun planning the Festival.  Our meetings are at 7:30pm and usually last an hour and a half.

Anyone can join - undergrads, grad students, alumni, people in the neighborhood, or anyone else who loves folk music.  If you are interested in joining the Folklore Society or just want to learn more about us, sign up for the Folklore Society mailing list or email us at and we'll get in touch with you.  We'd love to meet you!
