Want to get in on the fun? You can! Since we are mostly volunteer, we can use all the help we can get. We especially need help with such tasks as design and layout of the publication itself, tracking down ad leads, reporting on the latest things happening around town in the dance and music scene, writing reviews or articles, data entry or any number of other projects. We're a fun-hearted bunch and would love to have you become a part of the team...in a small way or with any amount of time or effort you can spare. Please contact us if there's something you'd like to contribute to FolkFire!

The FolkFire St. Louis Dance and Music Newsletter was extablished as a centralized source of folk dance and music information for the St Louis area. Its position is neutral with respect to the internal politics of all of the groups it lists.
The grander view of FolkFire, the organization, is to promote the social and interactive folk arts in as wide an area as we can address.
Disclaimer: While every effort has been made to ensure an accurate listing, last minute delays, cancellations, and changes do occur. Please call to confirm that an event is running as scheduled.
