Folkmoot After Dark Variety Show

Folkmoot After Dark Variety Show, New in 2019!

Late night during the Folkmoot Festival, something magical happens at the Friendship Center. After the last performance of the day and a hearty meal with friends, the volunteers and crew celebrate late into the evening sharing laughs, stories, and fun.
It’s a party! It’s a celebration! It’s funny, honest and genuine.
We call it “Folkmoot After Dark!”

Our theme is “An American Experience” and boy, have we got a night of fun ready for you!

Ol’ Dirty Bathtub

Playing some Old Time Songs with a funny twist, we may not be your grandpappy’s bluegrass- but he’ll dig it too! Based out of Sylva, NC our band plays an original mix of Americana, folk, and bluegrass. We bring good energy that will be sure to get you grooving and tapping those toes!
