The Butte Folk Music Society has brought acoustic music to the north state for over 30 years. We have produced concerts by many musicians, local, national and international.
We also support and promote Contra, Folk and Celtic dancing in the area. We have a calendar of events on our web site as well as a an e-mail calendar. These include music from many styles, folk, jazz and blues, from concerts to classes to festivals. These calendars are used by many to find out what is happening musically in our area. We also publish a newsletter.
One of the major events that the BFMS has produced, is the Homegrown Music Festival, a showcase featuring local talent. In the past these festivals have included several stages, and have produced audio and video recordings which have documented these performances and helped to raise funds for the orgainzation.
We have often partnered with Small Town Sound, and Dave Cowan has provided audio services which have been enjoyed by many of our artists. For some who have performed at the Homegrown Festival, the recordings of their set have been a great bonus for their archives.
