The Folk Music Hall of Fame and Museum will be dedicated to the incredible Journey of the people who created, performed and preserved American Folk Music over the past 400 years. This Journey chronicles and mirrors the American Experience and its music is the soundtrack of the hardships and struggles, the hope and exhilaration of those who tread that path.
