Our local and guest musicians have Profile Pages accessed from our Artists Page, where you can learn more, listen to their music, and get helpful links.

We also have Audio and Video offerings, and very much welcome ideas for artists and songs you would like to see posted, or invited to Fresno to perform!

Fresno Folklore Society welcomes young musicians and concert goers. We offer scholarships for students participating in traditional music instruction and performance events. For more information, and the form to apply, see our Sue Beevers Memorial Scholarships Page.

   But then I met these people that would get me playing music again. People like Big John and Lorraine Halcomb, Pete Everwine, Frank Hicks, Ron Hughey, and Will Spires. And they liked that old-time stuff."  Kenny Hall 


   “We wanted a lot more cultural events than just music. All around life, you know, all the way through. Since people stayed longer, we wanted other things happening because some of them weren’t musicians. I tried to include as many kinds of art as we could.” — Virgil Byxbe, Sweet’s Mill Director
