Welcome to the San Francisco Folk Music Club!

Whether you sing traditional songs or newer songs, a cappella or with your guitar, whether you play Old-Time, Irish, or other instrumental tunes, whether you dance contra, Irish, or swing, we’re always thrilled to meet new musicians! Come to one of our events, find out more about what we do, or join us!


Camp Harmony online this year – registration now open!

Our usual site at Walker Creek Ranch will be closed through at least the end of 2020, so we are preparing to bring Camp Harmony to your home via Zoom and possibly other platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.  Camp will be held virtually from December 31 until January 3. Daily workshops and evening events will be posted for registrants to plan their time at camp.  More information is here, or you can go directly to the registration form.

SFFMC and Coronavirus

Like all organizations that bring people together, the San Francisco Folk Music Club has been dealing with the implications of the new coronavirus. We’re now having our Friday musical meetings online and all our 2020 camps and festivals have gone online too.   We canceled this year’s Camp Harmony benefit concert. Our board of directors has been meeting online.  To stay up to date, keep visiting this website, visit our Facebook page , or subscribe to our Harmony email list.

To help keep you informed about what’s going on (still mostly online) in the larger folk world we now have an online community folk calendar on this website in addition to publishing it in the folknik.

We still don’t know when we’ll be able to put on in-person events again, or under what restrictions.  This is a difficult situation for everyone. Let’s look forward together to a time when we can sing and play together in person again. Whenever that will be, SFFMC will be here when the time comes.  We’ll keep things going online until then.
