West Side Folk works because of its volunteers and supporters.
Bringing the world's best folk, celtic and bluegrass music to
Lawrence, Kansas is an expensive and risky undertaking. West Side Folk
has no paid staff, tries to keep expenses low, and relies heavily on
volunteers. Your financial and volunteer support are crucial!
Here's how you can help:
We especially need help in these areas:
CD/Ticket sales and artist hospitality at shows, people to put up posters,
skilled computer graphic artists to design posters,
people with excellent ears and electronic aptitude to be trained to help
run sound, and strong people to help set up and take down sound equipment.
If you can help in one of more of these ways, please contact Jim Kurtz
or call 816-444-9013.
Your season ticket purchases help build our finances and, when you share
tickets with friends and clients, you help build the folk music audience.
