2019 Folkus Season

We’re so excited to share our news with you. Welcome to our 2019 season.

Folkus season’s passes will go on sale Monday, November 12, both here on our website and at Mill Street Books. Season’s passes bought at Mill Street Books come in a beautiful package suitable for gift-giving.

Individual tickets will be available the first week of January. All our regular season shows are held at the Almonte Old Town Hall.

Exploring the idea of North

We were exploring the idea of North, musically, when we programmed this show. Since then, both performers have travelled elsewhere, but they still offer compelling music and imagery, and we anticipate an exciting evening of music from both Kevin Closs and Flying Hórses.

Sudbury-based singer-songwriter Kevin Closs has followed his musical mentor Ian Tamblyn to Earth’s frigid zones and discovered his muse.

Big Little Lions with s/g Outside I’m A Giant

Big, little, giants…we have an unintended theme for this show. Both groups feature soaring sounds — Big Little Lions feature strong vocal harmonies, while Outside I’m A Giant build on fiddle, pedal steel, and a deep baritone voice.

Big Little Lions Family Matinee – 3:00 pm, March 24 at the Almonte Old Town Hall

As a special treat for families, we will be offering a 45-minute, family-friendly afternoon show with Big Little Lions. The music will be much the same, but the beverages will be kid-appropriate, and dancing is definitely encouraged, as are clapping, singing along, and twirling.

Amanda Rheaume concert sets Folkus 2018 in motion

The Folkus 2018 season got off to a great start on January 27th. Pakenham native Brad Scott opened the show with his infectious style of playing, and Amanda Rheaume’s trio had the hall on its feet with an extended set at this sold out concert.  What a great way to beat the winter blues.
