24th Annual Benefit Concert Weekend
January 22-23, 2010 7:30 PM (Fri.) and 6:30 PM (Sat.)
Since 1986 the World Folk Music Association has sponsored exciting annual, folk music extravaganzas, bringing together a unique mixture of both well-known and lesser known folk performers.
It has always been a wonderful opportunity to see and hear your favorite folk performers as well as become aquainted with new ones.
From 1986 through 1996 the event was a single concert at Lisner Auditorium in Washington, DC.
From 1997 through 2005 the event format was changed to a full weekend of folk music at a smaller venue, the Birchmere, in Alexandria, VA.
From 2006 through 2009 our concerts were back to a single concert at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center at Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus.
Reserved seating ticket holders for the Saturday night show
invited to attend a desert and coffee reception with the performers following the show at the
the Holiday Inn National Airport/Crystal City Hotel, located about 1.5 miles from the Birchmere.
