The site for folk music in Woodstock, Illinois, which is such a nice place that it was actually chosen to star in a movie. Director Harold Ramis picked it to play the part of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, in his 1993 comedy Groundhog Day.

And the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Woodstock one of a Dozen Distinctive Destinations for 2007.

This is the Internet home for three different folk music related undertakings in Woodstock, Illinois:
First Saturday Music
The good folks who ran the Masthouse regrouped when that venue closed and created First Saturday Music. As of January 7th, 2012, it can be found in its brand new home:
Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock
225 W. Calhoun Street
Woodstock, Illinois 60098
Plenty of parking across the street in the lot directly north of the building. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., names are drawn from the hat for the order of performers, and the music starts at 7 p.m. If you have any questions, contact Annemarie.
Amy Beth
Woodstock's own lady of story and song, Amy Beth, is always doing something to bring people together to share music or reflect on life's meaning and purpose. An accomplished instrumentalist, singer, teacher, and storyteller, Amy will make you feel good about being alive.
Woodstock Folk Festival
Mark your calendar now to come out to Woodstock, Illinois, on Sunday, July 21, 2013. That's the third Sunday in July, which is always the date of the annual Woodstock Folk Festival. The festival has been in operation since 1986, and it gets bigger and better every year.

And throughout the year the Woodstock Folk Festival runs a benefit concert series to help raise funds. Please check back often to find out about the next concert.

On Saturday, April 24, 2010, beginning at 2 p.m., our friends at Plank Road Folk Music Society will be celebrating their 25th Anniversay. All day-time activities are free to members and non-member alike, and only $10.00 to non-members for the evening concert featuring their long-time member Mark Dvorak.
