As our Endless Summer comes to a close, we'd like to take a moment to thank these generous festival sponsors:

The board and staff of the Susquehanna Folk Music Society remain committed to celebrating and affirming diverse cultures through programming which explores the music, dance, craft and stories of many people. We stand in complete solidarity with the Black community and all marginalized communities to join in the growing chorus of voices speaking out against injustice, bigotry and racial violence.

PULLING TOGETHER

Those who play and present music for a living are in difficult straits right now, along with restaurant staff, service workers, and so many others. If you are in a position to do so, please support your community in whatever ways you can.

If you play an instrument, you might consider reaching out to any musician you admire and asking about lessons via video-call. Many of them suddenly have more time and less income than usual! Ask your local music store owner if you can buy a gift certificate. See if the pub down the street is offering carry-out. Support an arts nonprofit whose work you believe in (like SFMS! among others).

Pull together with your community and do what you can. Together we'll get through this.

Many thanks to our festival sponsors:
