page covers more than you ever thought you needed to know about who we
are and what we do.
- Who We Are
- Our Activities
We are a group of people dedicated to
furthering the interest and appreciation of folk music through
education, research, and participation; familiarizing the people of
southeastern Pennsylvania with authentic folk art; and providing a
meeting place for those with a common interest in folk music. Our
membership includes novice, amateur, and professional performers
and singer/songwriters as well as listening members of all ages and
from all walks of life. We all share a love of primarily acoustic
music, and we enjoy it most when sharing it with friends. Several
excellent performing groups have resulted from associations that began
at our meetings. New
members are always welcome.
Here's a quick summary of our many and varied
activities. A number of other things that we DON'T do are listed below
In answer to a variety of FAQs, here
are a few things we DON'T do that you should be aware of.
- We DON'T book outside talent - we are blessed
with an abundance of willing and talented performers within our
ranks. If you're interested in performing in the area, please
consult our extensive list of local venues and let us know when
you'll be in the neighborhood.
- As a follow-up to the previous item - our
performing members DON'T get paid for participation in BCFSS
events. It's strictly for the exposure and the sheer joy of it.
- We DON'T sponsor a festival, we're busy enough
already. However, we are more than happy to publicize and
participate in festivals that take place within a reasonable
distance from Bucks County, PA.
- We DON'T engage outside food or merchandise
concessions for any of our events.
- We DON'T serve alcoholic beverages at our
meetings and events - the landlord wouldn't permit it anyway.
- We DON'T include information other than links to
non-member performers - there are entirely too many. We do provide
links and limited assistance in web page development as a special
service to our members-in-good-standing.
- We DON'T accept any paid advertising or links.
This site is strictly non-commercial and includes only links to
other sites that we deem to be of interest and value to our
audience. These may or may not be commercial sites, but no
endorsements or obligations whatever are expressed or implied.

IN THE SOCIETY:
$10 per Person or $15 per Family (half-price after
June 30) makes you one of
us. This allows you to come to all our meetings
, join in our music, play in our gigs,
and eat our snacks for the rest of the calendar year. You also get
monthly issues of our
incredibly entertaining and informative newsletter, THE BUCKHORN.
Finally you get the opportunity to share music with us at almost any
level that suits your talents and inclinations. If performing isn't
your thing, you get the opportunity to listen to many others
who would love to play for you.
If you're interested in joining us, you can contact
our Treasurer (see below) to make arrangements, or just drop in at one
of our monthly meetings and bring your wallet. Of course,
you're always welcome to attend a meeting as our guest, just to see if
what we do is for you, but if you decide to visit more than once or
twice, we ask you to ante up.
Here are the hard-working folks who
keep the organization going. Feel free to contact them with any
questions or concerns.
