What is a Folk Club?

A coming together of people interested in, and to celebrate and enjoy, the Traditional and Ancient Music of any given culture. We learn from the past to inform the future. We start the evening with “Floor Spots”, where members of the audience can perform one song or tune, before handing over to the invited artist.

He is a two-time winner and many-time finalist of the Appalachian String Band Music Festival (better known as Clifftop). Blount specializes in the music of Black communities in the southeastern United States, and in the regional style of the Finger Lakes. A versatile performer, Blount interpolates blues, bluegrass and spirituals into the old-time string band tradition he belongs to.
