Charlotte Folk Society 2015-16 Season Opener

Charlotte Folk Society 800x800Tonight, the Charlotte Folk Society (CFS) kicks off their 2015-2016 Gathering Season with Men Standing For Christ.

Charlotte Folk Society Gatherings are made possible, in part, with funding from the Arts & Science Council, the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.

The purpose of the Charlotte Folk Society, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and an Arts & Science Council grant recipient, is to promote the ongoing enjoyment and preservation of traditional and contemporary folk music, dance, crafts, and lore.

Charlotte Community Radio, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, is a proud media sponsor and we’re excited about tonight’s performance. Be in line at 7pm when the Great Aunt Stella Center front doors open to enjoy a pre-concert of songs from Lunch at the Piccadilly, a musical based on a book of the same name by renowned North Carolina author Clyde Edgerton. Lyrics and music were written by Mike Craver, a founding member of the Red Clay Ramblers. And at 7:30pm, Men Standing for Christ get underway with sounds of African American quartet-style gospel! This special experience is presented in partnership with Levine Museum of the New South and Charlotte Community Radio.
