Folk Rising™ Vision

In the 1960's, when the U.S. was in the midst of an extremely violent, unpopular foreign war and faced with many major divisive issues at home including segregation, a new breed of contemporary folk music evolved which addressed the social and political issues and helped our great country through those turbulent times.

Folk Rising™ 's sincere hope is that contemporary folk* music can again evolve and combine the best of the old and the new to help heal our country's wounds as it did in the 1960's.

Folk Rising™ Long Term Goal

Help develop Sioux Falls, SD into a center for regional professional and amateur folk* musicians to gain exposure for their material, meet other like minded musicians / enthusiasts, have fun and learn through listening and playing with a variety of other regional musicians.

* Definition of "folk" music for these purposes is very broad and includes (but is not limited to) older traditional folk music, 1960's protest songs, traditional country, folk-blues, roots music, Americana music, new-folk, and contemporary acoustic music.
