The mandate of the Folk Arts Society is to "produce arts festivals for the purpose of education and advancing the public's understanding and appreciation of Newfoundland and Labrador folk arts and to educate artists through participation in such festivals and related workshops; and to educate the public in folk arts through performances in public places and seminars".

Young Folk at the Hall – Stephenville

Fergus O'Byrne will be organizing and producing a Young Folk at the Hall project under the auspices of the Bay St. George's Folk Arts Council on October 3, 4 & 5, 2014.  Support for this initiative is being provided by The Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council and the NL Folk Arts Society.

Based on similar, earlier projects, Young Folk at the Hall is a weekend of workshops and a concert with the aim of allowing young folk enthusiasts share their talents with other like-minded musicians.

The final concert will be at the Stephenville Arts and Culture Centre Second Stage on the afternoon of Sunday, October 5th, featuring young musicians ages 7 - 18.  
For more information or to register (space is limited), contact  Fergus O'Byrne by email or calling (709) 576-4759 OR Aldonna O'Keefe by email.
