Free mp3 Folk Music Downloads

... and blues, bluegrass, celtic, children's, gospel, traditional music ...

I realize this is off topic for this blog, but I'd like to take a moment to invite you to visit eFolkMusic. It's an amazing nonprofit organization and website dedicated to supporting and promoting folk music and folk musicians.

eFolkMusic offers some free mp3 downloads to nonmembers. It offers 1,000 free downloads to new members, plus you get a 100-song cd sampler when you sign up. You also get a 10% discount on merchandise purchased through the site. Membership only costs $30, so you get about $1,000 of value from your $30 membership fee. I think that's pretty cool.

If you're wealthy and benevolent, eFolkMusic also has ways you can support their work (with higher-level memberships). If you'd like to help by promoting artists locally, I think they'll let you do that,too. It's a great site and a great organization.

I joined eFolkMusic with an artist membership last week. My profile is now active. I'll be posting another song every week or so. If you like the music, please visit often.
