Indy Folk Series: Vibe. Venue. Variety

IFS-color-transparent-340x200A great place for acoustic music in Indianapolis, IN!

by Joanne Smiddie-Brush

Now in our 15th season, the Indy Folk Series has become an institution – a vibrant, organic reflection of our audience’s tastes and commitment to high quality acoustic music. Concerts are held in the performance space at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, our home since the series was founded in 2001.

They feel inspired to give us their best, and they’re eager to return.  Continue reading
