Atlanta Folk Orchestra

The Atlanta Folk Orchestra is an all-inclusive community orchestra made up of anyone who wants to play. They play traditional folk dance tunes for our weekly contra dance in Inman Park. This is a unique musical opportunity where you will get to play for a social folk dance and receive guidance from a musical director while playing.

  • Come learn the dynamics of playing live music for a dance.
  • The group is at its best with a wide range of levels, insruments, and backgrounds - so bring what you got, no matter how new or different.
  • You'll be given tunes in advance; sheet music will be available.
  • Optional practice parties where you can hang out and practice.
  • Bring your friends and family to hear you play. They will get to enjoy the music, make friends, and have a great night dancing with us!

Want to play with us at our weekly dance? No need to sign up or pay anything, just come and bring your instrument. Information for our dance can be found here.
