Concert Schedule
Fall 2012 through TBD

Hogeye Folk Arts, Ltd. (HFA) thanks you for your long-time support. Since 1982, HFA has provided an audience and a stage for the folk-music performers who have helped preserve our rich national heritage of music and lore, as well as help shape it to reflect contemporary issues.

Effective September 10, 2012, however, HFA is taking a hiatus. Through normal attrition, our volunteer base has shrunk and we have lost key members of our governing board. In view of these developments, HFA believes that it is in the best interests of our performers and our audiences that we not try to mount concerts until we can operate at full strength to ensure that our performers' needs and our audiences' expectations can be met.

We anticipate that we will be regrouping and reforming through what would have been the 2012-TBD Fall, Winter and Spring concert seasons. If you would like to contribute your talent and energy to our rebuilding effort, please let us know by sending an e-mail to Tyler Wilson. One of the Founding Fathers of Hogeye Music (the store) and Hogeye Folk Arts, Ltd. (us), Tyler is now HFA’s go-to person for questions, comments, and volunteerism matters.

We’re guessing that you are visiting this web site because you have been a friend and follower of HFA for some time. You can be an even better friend by committing to our rebuilding process. Find out how by letting Tyler know of your interest and expertise. Our goal is to infuse fresh hands and ideas into the HFA organization, at the same time maintaining the reputations of excellence and warmth that have endeared Hogeye Folk Arts to so many for so long.

Please continue to visit this site for messages and updates.

All good wishes,

Hogeye Folk Arts, Ltd. Board of Directors


All concerts are on Saturdays at 7:30 PM. Doors open at 7:00 PM. Seating is first come, first seated. Contact info@hogeyefolkarts.org if you need accommodation for special needs.

$15 general admission, $13 seniors, $5 students with ID, free kids 12 and under. HFA member discount is $1 off the price of each general or senior admission paid. Admission may be paid at the door in cash or by check.

We've signed up with Brown Paper Tickets so you can now purchase "tickets" in advance for our concerts. Right now, only general admission tickets are available (but if you're a member or a senior, we will rebate the difference at the door). And there are no actual brown paper tickets - just a list of who has ordered tickets.

What does it cost? Aye, there's the rub. There's no such thing as a free lunch! But Brown Paper Tickets charges only $1.52 a ticket and you can charge with Discover, MasterCard, or Visa. You can buy tickets until about 7:30 AM on the day of the concert. And don't forget: your kids 12 and under are free!
