Folk music has many sounds and faces, and has changed, evolved and expanded from the traditional music of any particular culture, through the iconic '60s, to a thriving community and industry today.
Folk Alliance International welcomes folk music as anything rooted in tradition, indigenous to one's culture, and open to interpretation. FAI has members and showcases work from all genres of the music community: songwriters, bluegrass, blues, soul, world music, spoken word, zydeco, celtic, appalachian and much more.
Folk Alliance International exists as a registered 501(c)(3) charity:
To nurture, engage and empower the international folk music community — traditional and contemporary, amateur and professional — through education, advocacy and performance.
Tax deductible donations enable FAI to work daily towards this mission.
