The Broward Folk Club is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote folk and acoustic music and to provide a community for people who share a love for it.
The BFC held its first song swap in March of 1988. Twenty-one people showed up for that first meeting. Today the BFC has an active membership of more than 200.
The Broward Folk Club presents:
• Open Mics (currently on hiatus)
• Monthly Song Swap. A monthly song circle and music jam, held this winter at South Florida parks.
• Annual New Year’s Eve Song Swap
• Annual Picnic
A yearly membership (and voting) meeting, picnic, music, music and more music!
• Annual Folk Festival
The South Florida Folk Festival, usually held in January, is a highlight of BFC’s year. This annual event features performances by dozens of Florida based and nationally known artists. The Festival also features a songwriting competition, artist-led workshops, a jam area, crafts and food vendors and raffles.
Over the years, the BFC also has produced the Raven Coffeehouse; a Benefit Concert for Broward House, a residence for AIDS victims; and a Benefit Concert for Women in Distress, a residence for battered women and their children.
The Broward Folk Club is open to anyone who has a love for folk music, be they performer or listener. The low membership fee entitles members to:
• Monthly Calendar. Lists both on-going and other tri-county folk happenings.
• Discounts for BFC events & other folk happenings.
