Who we are
We are an organization promoting traditional music, dance,
and storytelling in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
About the music
Monthly "singing circles" have been on-going since 1982, and
often start with a pot-luck dinner. They are informal
gatherings, usually held the first Friday of each month at a
member's home. We begin with a few sing-alongs, then we take
turns around the circle, offering something we have
prepared, requesting a song or story, or just come to listen
and enjoy homemade entertainment. We use a "democratic"
format (taking turns), which encourages people of all levels
of accomplishment to participate.
Events and Activities
All Folklore Society events are smoke-free, and only
non-alcoholic beverages are served.
Write us to get on the mail list for the monthly open sing.
The Dance Series
The Folklore Society, together with the Chicory House,
sponsors a New England Contra Dance, usually on the first
Saturday of each month, October to May.
