Volunteering with SFMS

The Susquehanna Folk Music Society is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and encouraging the traditional arts in Central Pennsylvania. The folk arts aren't delivered to us from the outside, but spring from within our community. Being a part of the folk community is what volunteering is all about.

Volunteers Make It Happen!

SFMS events simply would not happen if not for the energy, enthusiasm, and efforts of our many volunteers. We are always looking for friendly faces and fresh ideas. Any skills or interests are valuable to us, and can be put to use — artistic, organizational, culinary, or day-to-day survival. Just some examples...

  • Good at writing?

    Perhaps you'd enjoy creating newsletter articles, CD reviews, or press releases for our events.
  • Get around a lot?

    You could distribute posters and newsletters to businesses and public spaces around the region.
  • Like to cook? (or shop?)

    Audience members appreciate tasty treats and beverages donated for sale at our concerts. Performers and other volunteers appreciate a good meal before a concert.
  • Never ready to go home?

    We'd love your help straightening up after events.
  • Have extra time before events?

    We can use help setting up too. Volunteers are also needed to take tickets and staff sales tables at events.
  • Have ideas for events?

    By all means, tell us about your ideas and let us support you in carrying them out.

And of course, an added benefit of being an active participant in the folk community is the chance to meet some of your folk heroes off the stage. These are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and they really appreciate all you do to bring audiences out to meet them and hear their performances.

You Make A Difference.

There's something that anybody can do, and everyone will benefit. You will be appreciated and recognized for your contribution.

Here's How:

Please contact us or email volunteers (at) sfmsfolk.org. Leave your name, phone number and, if desired, area of interest. We will respond and discuss how you can direct your skills and interests toward providing Central Pennsylvania with a rich program of folk music and arts.
