Just had to reply to JO_77. The wonderful thing about the Folklore Society of Greater Washington is that it has provided a respite from "official" D.C. for so many of us for so many years. (I've been involved since moving here in 1976.) While many of our 2,500+ members have government jobs, this is not a political/corporate community. We're a community of singers (Charlie Baum explained that one very nicely), instrumentalists, dancers, songwriters, listeners, and concert-goers who share a love of these things we enjoy. We're an eclectic bunch who have come together to have fun under the loose mission statement of "preserving and promoting the traditional folk arts in the greater Washington, DC, metropolitan area." Under that banner, and with so many folks involved in different ways, there's lots of room to explore. I think everyone planning to come to the Getaway will have lots of fun. Kathy
