Artist Engagement Services

The Old Town School of Folk Music offers a wide array of entertainment for any occasion by talented, professional artists. We offer soloists through 11-piece bands, dance instructors and callers, workshop leaders and more for virtually any occasion including weddings, picnics, festivals, corporate events, holiday parties and children's parties.


Please note that when you book entertainment through the Old Town School of Folk Music you are guaranteed professional service and musicianship. But most importantly, you are helping to fund the Old Town School in its continuing mission to teach and celebrate music and cultural expressions rooted in the traditions of diverse American and global communities.

Generally, bookings require a minimum of 2-3 weeks lead time prior to the date of event.
