Fall Song Festival October 21-23 

The Fall Song Festival is Portland FolkMusic Society’s annual on-line worldwide event, taking place this year from 1 PM, Friday October 21, through 5 PM Sunday October 23, 2022 (all times Pacific).

Fall Song is a place to enjoy the best of traditional folk music from many different traditions - there is a list of the events that have been programmed so far below, and we will update that continuously as more leaders step forward.

This year, we are working to bring you a wide breadth of music, with young singer-songwriters you may not be familiar with, but who make great music that will be considered the folk music of tomorrow.

FallSong is free. Sort of.

We have invited a diverse group of young performers to entertain you - people who are real folk singers, but unlikely to come to FallSong on their own. The money you contribute will be divided evenly among them. Many of them dream of singing for a living and supplement their income by teaching, waiting tables, or doing gig work. We don't want to ask them to do this for nothing, even if some of them would.

We would like everyone who participates to contribute financially. The suggested contribution is $25 for the whole weekend, or $10 a day. Please give what you can.

Oh! Big thanks to the folks who have already contributed! We're very grateful for the show of support for the young invited singers!



Distant Friends

We've always been in contact with other folk clubs, but since Covid and Zoom, everyone seems to be everywhere. No matter who is hosting online events, you will see a lot of familiar faces. At PFS we are extremely grateful for the technical help, moral support, and enthusiastic participation we have had from our sister clubs.

This year, we are delighted that Seattle Folklore Society and San Francisco Folk Music Club are supporting FallSong, just as PFS will support their events. Thanks guys!
