The Folk Music Society of Midland is saddened to hear of the passing on September 5th, 2019, of Bruce Macartney, who was an important part of the local traditional music community. FMSM sends its condolences to his wife, Carol, their children, the family members, and his bandmates and friends.

Wow! Thanks to all who made the 2019 MFMF happen, and to all of you who came and made it so much fun! We'll see y'all next August... If you have photos that you're willing to share, please send them to beldar57@yahoo.com. Thanks!

 2019 Workshop Schedules

2019 Saturday Night Stage Show Schedule

2019 Jams and Sing-A-Longs Schedule

People start arriving for the festival Monday morning, August 19th, and there are many informal jams that happen before the festival proper begins on Thursday evening, August 22nd, with the sing-along in the Fair Center.  This year, Senior Discount will be presenting the music of the Weavers, and as well as singing along, you will have the opportunity to bring your instrument and play along as well! 


If you would like to download the lead sheets and put them on your tablet or print them out, you can find them at https://drive.google.com/open?id=167dTDO0wS1tF17wzt62q13_wrBH__8cd .  There will be a limited number of paper copies of the songbook available at the sing-along/play-along, and if you wish to keep a paper copy, we would ask you to contribute $2 to cover the cost of printing.

For unfamiliar songs you would like to learn, they can be found at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6Z9_aT8mHdGbr4hGbPFDLVNnB2FjfRQ1 .  Bring a music stand along with your instrument and voice.
