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!

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).

Donate to the Susquehanna Folk Music Society through Give Local York on May 1, and your gift will be partially matched thanks to the generosity of the York County Cultural Alliance and area businesses. Susquehanna Folk has been presenting unique and dynamic arts events for over 35 years now, and brighter days will be here soon! Until then, we are continuing to support local artists through live-streamed concerts and bring you music in other ways.

We all need a little hopeful news, right? We have posted the schedule for the 2020 Susquehanna Folk Festival and it's pretty fantastic -- starting off Friday evening with a concert featuring Cumberland Honey and Colebrook Road, and a contra dance with Wild Asparagus! Lots of workshops, lots of jamming, and of course LOTS of performances. New this year is a Festival Youth Band program for kids age 6-16. Check it out!
