Explore music from around the world.  You will be guided on audio adventures to locales far and near, with traditional and contemporary international music that is both compelling and tantalizing.


With a Little Help From Our Friends

We would like to thank all our SLOfolks supporters who help us host our musicians: 

Kristin and Alan Cameron have often hosted SLOfolks bands in their peaceful Shanagolden Retreat B&B in Templeton.
Shanagolden is named after a small town in Limerick, Ireland.  It is said to be a place of great peace and tranquility.  

Shanagolden Retreat

We also want to thank Ollie & Dennis Palm,  Stanley and Carol Stearn, and Rich and Chris Klingman who have generously opened their homes to host some of our musicians.
Their hospitality has been very much appreciated by our musicians and by SLOfolks.

If you are interested in hosting SLOfolks musicians please send a message through the contact form.

                           CHANGES FOR SLOFOLKS 2015

Ted and Elisabeth will be handing over the reins of SLOfollks to David Arndt at the end of 2014. 

"After ten years of running SLOfolks, we are very happy to have found a very capable and charming person to run SLOfolks."  David  has been a SLOfolks volunteer with his wife Marianne and I am sure that  many of you have already met him!
Marianne is the owner of Linnaea's Cafe where SLOfolks first began….the circle is complete!"

It has been a privilege  for me to book and promote such wonderful artists from all over the world and we are proud that SLOfolks is running smoothly with over 2000 fans on our concert announcement list. 

Thank you so much to all the SLOfolks friends who have made SLOfolks a success by coming to our concerts and telling their friends about it. 

It has been a joy for us to bring such good music to our community!"
