Member Benefits
  • Members receive a monthly 16-22-page newsletter, including a 4-to-6 page calendar of concerts, festivals, workshops, and dances throughout the state and beyond. This is the most comprehensive listing in the Carolinas -- available only through Folk Society membership. You can look at past newsletters here. If you'd like a free sample in hardcopy, send an e-mail to Wanda Hubicki.
  • Members may place free classified ads in three issues of the newsletter yearly.
  • House concerts are announced via the newsletter and emails to CFS members.
House concerts are just exactly what they sound like: intimate, small concerts in a person's home. Usually, these concerts cater to no more than 50 people, and sometimes it is just 20 to 30 people, which makes for a very informal, relaxed atmosphere to experience the music. Ticket prices are very reasonable. We work hard to bring you a variety of musical talent via the house concerts.
  • Members receive discounts on purchases at participating area stores.
  • Members are automatically eligible to use the services of the Sharonview Federal Credit Union.
  • Members may place free ads on The Folk Society Marketplace page of our website for their products, and services. Ads may be for CDs, books, instruments, and handcrafts.
  • Members may place free ads for their services, such as performance, teaching lessons, etc.

Throughout the year, we often have other special opportunities that benefit members; e.g. discounts on tickets to concerts by other presenters.

Sue Eldridge is the CFS Membership Chair. If you have questions about the status of your membership, please contact Sue at or 704-364-8858.
