2015 Festival Schedule Posted

The schedule for the 2015 Midland Folk Festival, August 27-30, is now posted on our Festival page. Actually there are two schedules, one lists the events by day and time and the other lists the workshop sessions by instrument. As with everything in life, they are subject to change. We hope to see you there!

July 5th is Folk Music Sunday...

Folk Music Sunday is coming up! On Sunday, July 5th, FMSM will be well-represented at Dow Gardens. There will be three groups scattered about the grounds, along with the traditional dancers in the barn. Admission to DG is $5/day or $10/annual pass. Come on out and enjoy the beautiful music in a beautiful setting!

Second Jam, PEANUT

NO SECOND JAM this summer! PEANUT meets at 7pm at the MPS Administration Building, 600 E. Carpenter (between Rodd and Haley) on Friday, 6/12/15.  Future dates are Thursday, July 9, and Thursday, August 13.

 If you would like to see Second Jam resume in the fall, someone will need to step up and make that happen. Contact me (sugarfmsm@gmail.com) if you are interested in doing so, and I will be glad to guide you in what needs to be done. - Hunt
