Broward Folk Club
The Broward Folk Club just elected our new Board of Directors.
Please read over the current members of the Board to get to know us better.
We are still looking for 1 more person to consider joining the board. If you are interested in being considered, please reach out to Bill or Elyse.
Without membership participation, we cannot exist and definitely will not thrive!
If you are interested in helping with the Festival, but not being on the Board, please also let us know. (You could send an email with subject “Festival Committee”. ) We will be creating a Festival committee specifically to work on all things Festival- from Performers to advertising / marketing to social media coverage. Members of this committee do not need to be on the board.
Our song swaps will be held at our new location on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 2-5 pm:
Together We Stand Inc
3350 N 57 Drive
Hollywood, Florida 33021
(located off of N. 56th Ave just north of Sheridan St. in Hollywood)
Elyse Brunt-2 year term
I have been an active member of the Broward Folk Club since 2000. I have been the Secretary the BFC since 2021 and previously served on the board many years ago. I have also taken on the role of webmaster and media specialist for the club. I am also a musician and have taught ukulele and guitar to students in elementary and middle school. I am very passionate about the promotion of local music events, especially working with young people to grow our community and expand our outreach with schools, colleges, and community organizations.
Bill Wunderlich- 2 year terms
I have been a Board member of Broward Folk for over twenty years and am currently Vice-President. Other positions that I have held include Parliamentarian, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary, Open Mike/Concert Co-Ord, Children’s Stage Manager, Chair of Performer Selection Committee, and a Preliminary Judge of the Singer-Songwriter Competition for the South Florida Folk Festival.
When I first moved to Florida in the late 90s I was looking for a folk club to belong to. I found this folk club and was on the board for four years and worked as the head of vendors for 3 years while we had the festival at Easterlin Park. During my career I mainly worked as a Psychotherapist and spent my last 16 years working for the Broward Sheriff’s Office. To round out the mental and physical I taught Massage Therapy at the American Institute. I play fiddle and am learning the Ukulele.
I have worked with many musicians in Nashville (including Rascal Flatts, Loretta Lynn, and others) and for 3 years as a staff songwriter for the “Songs of Love Foundation.” In 2011, I founded the The Song Team, which combined songwriting and professional development. In this capacity, I led workshops for many corporations to help build teamwork and collaboration. I am currently the executive director at Temple Beth El in Hollywood and have been actively working with many non-profits for several years. I am also a musician and member of Jewgrass Revival, a local bluegrass band. I began working with the Broward Folk Club after the last festival and am helping to coproduce a concert series. I look forward to working together to promote local music and expand our community engagement.
