Our upcoming season, which will run September 2017 – May 2018, is completely booked and will be announced on May 6, 2017.
The Indy Folk Series presents one concert a month, on Saturday evenings, during our season which runs from September through May.
Regrettably, we are not able to host additional concerts above and beyond those that have already have been scheduled, and we cannot produce events on short notice. We are not able to present concerts on any day other than Saturday, and do not present concerts in June, July, or August.
We offer first-rate acoustics, an attentive audience who is there to listen to the performance, and a friendly volunteer staff. We provide a professional audio engineer, mixing board, and all sound equipment. The Indy Folk Series can seat up to 200, and audience size ranges from 75 – 200.
We have not yet even begun contemplating our September 2018 – May 2019 Season!
If you would like to be considered for September 2018 or later, please send your press kit to our Booking Coordinator at IndyFolkSeries(at)gmail.com and let us know when you will be playing in the greater Indianapolis area. We always like to see a live, in-person performance before booking anyone for a spot in our season. We have not, in recent memory, featured a performer at the Indy Folk Series whom we have not had the pleasure of seeing perform in front of a live audience. In fact we prefer to see more than one performance, in a variety of settings if possible, as well as have the opportunity to have a brief conversation at the break or after the show.
We realize that this may be frustrating for performers who wish to play our stage, but do not tour through Indianapolis on a regular basis. However our volunteer staff frequently go to nearby festivals and concerts, and we often attend Folk Alliance Region Midwest, (FARM) specifically to meet new performers. So be sure to let us know if you will be playing nearby and/or attending FARM, and we will make every effort to see one of your performances.
We strive to present a mix of genres and styles, introduce our audience to new talent, AND bring back at least one returning favorite each season. Given the very limited number of concerts we present each year, one of our greatest challenges is selecting just a handful of acts from among all the incredibly talented performers whom we would truly love to invite to play our stage! Please do not be offended if we are unable to host you at Indy Folk Series.
