Golden Link's 50th Anniversary Celebration!

On May 18, 1971, a group of Rochester-area musicians gathered to start a folk music club “dedicated to the appreciation and enjoyment of folk music.” By September of that year, the name “Golden Link” had been chosen, inspired by the Folk-Legacy album called “The Golden Ring.” Some of the participants at that first meeting are still involved with Golden Link, which this year celebrates its 50th anniversary.


A 50th Anniversary is known as the Golden Anniversary so it's only appropriate that, to mark the occasion, Golden Link is holding a special concert featuring Rochester musicians of special significance to Golden Link, including:

There is no charge to attend the concert, which will be streamed on Golden Link’s Facebook and YouTube pages. 


After the concert, join us for a Zoom party where you can share stories about your involvement in Golden Link.
