SUSQUEHANNA FOLK FESTIVAL NEWS - Thu, Apr 23, 2020
Our Emerging Artist Showcase is one of the most-anticipated parts of our festival. We can't do it in person in 2020, so we're taking it online! Join us on August 9 at 7pm to see five great new acts performing LIVE, and vote for your favorite. Who will bag our $500 prize? Folk performers of any age who aren't yet regulars on big-time stages are encourage to apply by July 25!
Some of our favorite national and local artists are joining us online during Give Local York on May 1 for an all-star SFMS Keeps the Music Coming! Livestream Concert. Grab some popcorn and we can watch it together at 6pm (Facebook and Instagram) or you can watch it anytime May 1 on YouTube.
The Susquehanna Folk Music Society board has made the difficult decision to postpone this summer’s festival to July 23-25, 2021. SFMS shares the disappointment that many will feel with this news. The safety of our audience members, performers and volunteers is our first consideration, and we are deeply concerned about the public health risks of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
