Princeton Folk Music Society

The Princeton Folk Music Society has encouraged the growth of folk music in central New Jersey for 40 years. We sponsor a monthly house sing for members on the first Friday of each month and a monthly concert by visiting folk singers and songwriters, usually on the third Friday of each month. Non-members are welcome to attend our monthly concerts - we hope to see you at the next one!

Contact us if you'd like to be added to our email list for concert announcements.

Unless otherwise noted, the monthly concerts are held at Christ Congregation Church, 50 Walnut Lane, Princeton, NJ (at Houghton Road & across from Princeton High School - see map).

From Route 1: Take Washington Road (Rte 571) into Princeton and cross Nassau Street. When road ends in a "T" turn right onto Wiggins. At fourth left, turn left onto Walnut Lane (to the right the street name is Chestnut). Proceed about two blocks to the church on the left, and turn left onto Houghton for parking, which is plentiful.

Other Useful Information

Unless otherwise noted, concerts start at 8:15 pm. Coffee and desserts are served during the intermission. These concerts are a wonderful way to hear your favorite folk musicians or to hear new singer-songwriters and singers of traditional music, all in an intimate, friendly setting. In addition, house concerts are occasionally held in members' homes.

Ticket Information

Concert admission for most shows is $20 for non-members, $15 for members, $10 for students aged 12 - 22, and $5 for children eleven years of age and under. Tickets for most shows are not available in advance - they are sold at the door starting about 40 minutes before the performance.
