The folknik, the Club newsletter, is issued every other month and posted here on the SFFMC website. It contains a schedule of folk music events in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, original songs, news of Club activities, and articles of general interest. Starting with the July-August 2020 issue, we will no longer be routinely sending out the folknik by postal mail. Instead, we’ll send email notices to all members to let them know when each new issue is published. If you’re a SFFMC member and you think we may not have your current email address on file, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
We may be able to print and mail a limited number of copies to members who do not have email or do not have a computer or internet access. If that is your situation, you can let us know by email at email@example.com, by postal mail at SFFMC Membership, 149 Santa Maria Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, or by phone at 510-473-6651. If you have other concerns about this decision, please contact folknik editor-in-chief Donna Scarlett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send e-mail submissions for folknik articles to the editor of the page where the information should be printed, with a copy to the Editor-in-Chief. The deadline for submittal is normally the first Friday of even-numbered months, with an exception for the January-February issue. See the most recent folknik for the deadline date. (The deadline for the upcoming November-Devember 2021 issue is Friday, October 15.)

More back issues will be posted later as we complete our transition to this new website. For now, older issues back to 1998 can be accessed on our archived prior website at http://old.sffmc.org/oldfolknik_body.html . If that doesn’t work, try https://web.archive.org/web/20200812230650/http://old.sffmc.org/oldfolknik_body.html . Please note that much of the other info on that archived site is now out of date.
