History of Riverfolk

Since 2004, Riverfolk Music and Arts Organization has existed in Manchester to engage the community in music and arts experiences which nurture creativity and promote cultural diversity. We have accomplished this with the Riverfolk Festival 2001-2012, Manchester Gazebo Concerts, Cultural Art Strings youth string education, and most recently The Blacksmith Shop Concert Series-a small intimate series dedicated to presenting the finest regional musicians combined with a sampling of local food and drink. The purpose of the series is to bring more people to Manchester thereby positively affecting the economic activity of the area
