Welcome to the Baltimore Folk Music Society


The Baltimore Folk Music Society is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to preserving and promoting folk music, dance, and tradition. BFMS sponsors regular dances, concerts, family events, and related activities year-round. Members are eligible for discounts to Society events by showing their membership card.

BFMS is a member of the Country Dance & Song Society and shares reciprocity arrangements with the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, and the Annapolis Traditional Dance Society.


Please take the time to review the BFMS suggestions and policy on reducing risk of COVID-19.

BFMS Memberships Extended

BFMS is extending all memberships during the time that BFMS events have been cancelled. What that means is that all BFMS Memberships are extended for a month for each month that events are cancelled.

Please help support our Callers and Musicians

BFMS encourages our members to donate to musicians and callers who had their BFMS sponsored gigs cancelled due to coronavirus. We are no longer accepting donations through our website, but CDSS has established a website for donations to musicians and callers.

If you cannot find contact info for specific performers, please contact our dance chairs, who can provide contact info.
