TURN YOUR FRONT PORCH INTO A COMMUNITY STAGESongFarmerMusicClubLOGO

FACT: Folk, roots and bluegrass music is not a sterile, digital two-dimensional flat screen experience. It is real people playing real instruments as a community. Think of it … the best music at folk and bluegrass festivals doesn’t happen onstage, it’s in the campgrounds and parking lots. Folk music, in all its forms, is best played by the members of its own audience. The WFPA is taking on a major initiative – to encourage folks in communities to find each other, play music together and be creative with their art. 

SongFarmers Music Chapters” are for WFPA members to host in their communities. It can be a front porch, living room, radio station performance area, general store, school or community center. From the Hudson Valley in New York to Texas, SongFarmer clubs are springing up as we gather the global front porch community of artists and music lovers.  These are open, community, non-ticketed events.

It’s easy. And fun. Just invite a few friends over to your front porch, back yard, living room, local community center to pick, sing and play. Have them invite a few of their friends. That’s it.

SongFarmer Music Clubs are for our members to organize in their hometowns. The smaller you keep it the more fun it will be. Simply invite friends over for a music jam, song circle, “open mic” or sing along. It can be in your living room, a school, a local coffeehouse, a barn or a town gazeebo. Create an email invitation list and once a week, once a month, whenever the spirit strikes … invite the local SongFarmers over with their instruments and have fun. Everyone plays for free and for the sense of community. You don’t need a stage or a sound system. The more local and “living room” you keep it the better. It will also last longer.
