In light of the announcement on January 3rd by the Government of Ontario that indoor concert venues be closed until at least January 26, our first concert of the season (originally scheduled for Jan 29th) has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 4 at 8:00 p.m.
We’re all missing the pleasures of live music in our fabulous town hall, and we’re keen to return to what makes Folkus Concert Series tick. In the meantime, as we head into spring after a year of pandemic-living, we want to share the ways in which some of our team members have been supporting musicians.
Read on to meet some of the women behind Folkus and hear how they are supporting music during this time…
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.
We feel really lucky when we get to help our friends, right?
We got to help out Jim Bryson. He’s coming to town for a special, intimate, show at Equator.
