Who are we?
The Cornell Folk Song Society is a non-profit membership organization that seeks to preserve and promote traditional and traditionally-oriented folk music both on and off campus. Membership is open to everyone and is FREE for Cornell Students. Founded in the 1950s, we've been known at one time or another as a "club" or a "society," but we've been a large part of the folk music scene in Ithaca through most of that time. You can read more about our history here.
Members get a discount on concert admission, a voice in deciding about activities and other benefits. Find out more about membership here.
The annual meeting of the Cornell Folk Song Society will be held on Sunday, May 4, 7 pm, at Anabel Taylor Cafe on the Cornell campus. All members are encouraged to attend. (click here for map)
