South Coast Folk Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit educational organization which is dedicated to the preservation, study, teaching, enjoyment and continuing evolution of traditional and historical dance, music and song.
A Board of Directors oversees the activities, and many volunteers provide time, energy, and their talent to ensure that folk music and traditional dance continue as a vital part of our community. We’re part of the Country Dance and Song Society, which chose us as one of six North American communities to help celebrate its centennial in 2015.
We offer contra, international folk, border morris, and English country dancing; an open band, concerts, workshops and other special events.
As we gear up post-pandemic, look for many events sponsored by the South Coast Folk Society.
