The Jericho Folk Society (JFS) was created in the spring of 2014 to meet expectations from the Jericho Sailing Centre Association (JSCA) about hosting a folk music evening at the Sailing Centre. We are a non-profit society whose mission is to provide a venue for local and visiting folk musicians to perform with little or no sound reinforcement. The JFS consists of 5 members, the minimum required under the BC Societies Act.
For the 2014 & 2015 seasons the members of the JFS were Andrea Smith, Lorraine Baker, Dave Lidstone, Don Davidson and Roger Holdstock. Dave acted as Artistic & Managing Directors and the others were Directors at Large. In addition we enjoyed the wonderful services of Chris Ronald managing our web-site and Cameron Stewart creating our posters. Don wrote most of the copy for the promotional materials.
For the 2016 season Andrea’s role has been assumed by Georgina Arntzen. Our deepest thanks go to Andrea for her contributions. She will remain an active participant.
For the 2017 season Georgina will step in as Artistic Director and Dave will continue as Managing Director.
