Introducing NC Folk’s monthly newsletter, Folklife Flashes!
Each issue you’ll have the sights, sounds, and stories of our state delivered right to you. You’ll meet a different traditional artist or group, find a food feature handpicked for the month, and get a quick collection of links to help you with your work. Best of all, we’ll share with you a special bit of media from our archives you might not encounter anywhere else . . . AND let you know about a special offer in our store available only to our subscribers! If you have received the last two issues, no need to sign up, you’re already on the list! If not, click the sign up button below.
Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the North Carolina Folklfe Institute by celebrating the wonderful traditions of our state . . . and be sure to tell a friend!
