Golden Link Folk Singing Society

The Golden Link Folk Singing Society has been the driving force behind bringing excellent folk, roots, blues, bluegrass, and other acoustic-oriented music to the Rochester, NY area for over 40 years. Join us on Tuesday nights for an informal sing-around, attend one of our monthly concerts or musicians' workshops, or experience our weekend-long annual Turtle Hill Folk Festival.  Either way, you'll leave with your toes tappin' and a song in your heart!

    Linguini – it isn’t necessary to have an account to use the website, view events, the community calendar, etc. You only need an account if you want to receive email notifications from us regarding upcoming events, or to purchase tickets for them. If you want to view the Members section, then you do have to purchase a membership, and you would need an account on the website for that.

    One cool new feature – if you want to see what’s going on in folk music in the Rochester area – is the Community Calendar page. It uses Google calendar and always shows you the most current information from today’s date onward. You can even join the calendar and then access the listing of folk music events on your computer, phone or tablet. There’s also a blog on the new website and we will posting stories there – as we have already been doing in the Arts Community blog on the Democrat and Chronicle website. And if you follow Golden Link on Facebook, you’ll get other news about upcoming events.

    Richard – just wanted to mention that the site is still a work in progress. We’ll be adding a gallery section for videos and images of recent events. We welcome other suggestions for site additions or changes, so please use the Webmaster link at the bottom of the page if you’d like to send us some. Thanks!

    Wonderful job, Dan! Golden Link’s new website is brand-spanking new and already pretty awesome, taking advantage of 20-teens tech to present our 44-year-old club in a classy, modernly equipped, & navigable format. Folks need to realize that as you’re able to apply more of your (already considerable) volunteer time to task, we’ll see our club’s site manifest into one of—if not—the best of its kind. The club is fortunate as heck to have you as Webmaster!

    Not sure I like the new website. I hope more will be added as I don’t live in the Rochester area anymore but like seeing and hearing about the sing-a-rounds plus events taking place.
