Membership in the Vancouver Folk Song Society is open to anyone interested in singing, playing, listening to, or learning about folk music.

The Vancouver Folk Song Society strives to be an inclusive group that welcomes people of all ages and abilities. Our primary aim is to share songs and music as a group rather than to provide a venue for performing to an audience. In this way, we hope to keep the folk song tradition alive and well in our diverse communities.

Yearly membership is only $20 for an individual and $30 for a family.
