Jane Voss and Hoyle Osborne
The Fresno Folklore Society will present Jane Voss and Hoyle Osborne in concert at 7:30 PM on Friday, May 6, 2016 at Mia Cuppa Cafe 620 E Olive Ave Fresno, CA .

A dynamic juxtaposition of tradition and originality. An unlikely duo. Jane Voss is an earthy singer and a superb songwriter. Hoyle Osborne is a master of ragtime and early jazz piano and a distinctively original composer. Partners for more than 25 years.
They’ve played most of the major folk festivals across North America and they’ve been featured on many National Public Radio programs. Their recordings are heard around the world. They’ve received critical acclaim from the Village Voice, the San Francisco Examiner, the Washington Post, Stereo Review, Sing Out!, Folk Roots, and Dirty Linen.
$15 FFS/ADV $20 Door tickets are on sale at National Hardware, Patrick's Music and fresnofolklore.org

Who We Are The Fresno Folklore Society (FFS) is a non-profit corporation founded for the purpose of preserving folk arts, especially traditional music, in California's San Joaquin Valley.

What We Do We sing, we dance, we play music, and some tell stories. Above all we have fun and provide venues for the community to hear and enjoy "alternative" music. The goal of FFS is to promote music and dance of many cultures.
Membership is open to the community: $20 per year, individual; $30 family. Benefits: a monthly newsletter, a calendar of upcoming events and a discount for most concerts. We do encourage families. The Folklore society is a family affair. Children are welcome to all events--well, almost all.
