Upcoming events

North Florida Folk Music – History and Tradition presented by Ron Johnson (Tuesday, September 16 at 5:30pm)
Join author and folk musician Ron Johnson as he shares some of the stories and insights into the folk music of North Florida and those who define the tradition.

This program is free and open to the public. Ron will sell copies of his book, “North Florida Folk Music – History and Tradition”. Cash and checks accepted.

North Florida’s proud folk music heritage reaches back more than half a century. The region claims many talented artists and song writers, including Frank Thomas, Bob Patterson and Charlie Robertson, while hundreds of solo, duo and group performers regularly inspire audiences at local venues. The Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs is the home of the Florida Folk Festival, the longest continuous state-sponsored folk festival in the country, held every year on the banks of the Suwannee River.
