Join PFS

Membership in the Portland FolkMusic Society will bring you the bi-monthly newsletter, Local Lore, and discounts on some PFS events. You will have the pleasure of being a member of a community of people who like a lot of the same music as you. And, your membership will help keep that music alive in the Portland area and beyond. 

Members in good standing are eligible to vote for the Board of Directors and run for the Board.

Also, some features of this website are reserved exclusively for PFS members.
