BFMS Membership

Please consider joining The Baltimore Folk Music Society. We count on memberships to help support folk events in Baltimore. The cost of the membership and any donations are now fully tax deductible!

We have a lot to offer the folk community. With your help, we can continue to do an outstanding job of providing enjoyment to the Greater Baltimore area.

Benefits of Membership in BFMS

  • Membership provides discounts at over 120 BFMS events throughout the year.
  • Reciprocity agreements that allow our members to attend events sponsored by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, and the Annapolis Traditional Dance Society at their member's rates.
  • A monthly newsletter provided to you by email as an attachment.
  • BFMS Scholarships
    BFMS sets aside $500 a year for small grants to BFMS members seeking to upgrade skills that benefit the BFMS community. Scholarship funds may help to defer tuition or travel expenses to attend workshops, summer camps, and courses for dance musicians and callers. There is no deadline for applications, but they must be received before the event takes place. Send a letter describing the event, overall costs, how much you are requesting, and how assisting you would benefit the BFMS community to Scholarship Committee, BFMS, P.O. Box 65144, Baltimore MD 21209.
