Unity Hall – a great space to perform – designed for listening!“It’s always great to perform at any venue that’s designed for listening... It lets the songs shine, the music breathe … it allows for nuance and subtlety that you might sacrifice in a louder venue.” -Ben Parent of The Rivergods Norwich Bulletin 9/22/11

New England Folk Network Defines Folk Music"Folk. Folk music has long relied on oral/aural transmission, which lends to its accessibility and popularity in informal social situations. For purposes of this [New England Folk Network] website and this website only, I define “folk” as acoustic-based non-theatrical vocal or instrumental music created and/or performed without reliance on a classically or academically trained musical background; also, the subsequent evolutions of this music."
