Sustain Folk Music’s Diverse Tapestry

As the year draws to a close, the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) invites you to join its crucial end-of-year fundraising drive, an initiative aimed at preserving and promoting the rich diversity of folk music. This drive is more than a call for donations; it’s an invitation to become part of a vision where the unique melodies and stories of folk music are accessible to everyone, transcending cultural and generational boundaries.

Our 2023 Impact: Your Support in Action

This past year has been remarkable for NERFA, and it’s all thanks to our community of generous donors. With your support, we achieved significant milestones, notably awarding $10,000 in scholarships. This initiative has been pivotal in breaking economic barriers and fostering diversity at our conferences, enabling artists from the earliest stages of their careers to share their artistry and stories.

Additionally, the launch of our “Coffee and Wood” series marked a new chapter for NERFA. This vibrant platform has become a celebration of talent, where artists from diverse backgrounds showcase their incredible skills, enriching the folk music landscape with fresh perspectives and sounds.

The Core of Our Mission: Inclusivity and Connecting Generations

At its heart, NERFA is more than just an organization; it’s a movement dedicated to inclusivity and cultural wisdom. Our ongoing initiatives, like the “Wisdom of the Elders” and “On the Griddle” segments in our podcast, serve as vital connectors between generations and cultures. These programs are not mere entertainment; they are essential threads in the fabric of our community, weaving together the old and the new, the traditional and the innovative.

To maintain the momentum and continue our vital work, we need your support. Every contribution you make plays a crucial role in fueling our mission to create and sustain inclusive spaces for artists and audiences alike.
