The Old Town School of Folk Music teaches and celebrates music and cultural expressions rooted in the traditions of diverse American and global communities.

First Friday is the Old Town School's monthly night of music, dance, and community. Bring your instrument, your voice, dancing shoes, a date, your family, or a few friends. The bar is open, and we welcome the public to participate in many ways!
