For the Love of Traditional Arts and Dance! 

   But then I met these people that would get me playing music again. People like Big John and Lorraine Halcomb, Pete Everwine, Frank Hicks, Ron Hughey, and Will Spires. And they liked that old-time stuff."  Kenny Hall 


   “We wanted a lot more cultural events than just music. All around life, you know, all the way through. Since people stayed longer, we wanted other things happening because some of them weren’t musicians. I tried to include as many kinds of art as we could.” — Virgil Byxbe, Sweet’s Mill Director

Something for everyone...

Fresno Folklore Society is a resource for everyone who either makes folk art or loves to experience it!
