Presenting and Supporting Folk & Acoustic Music
in the Washington, DC Area

We're certainly living in uncertain times - but one thing remains true: artists and musicians will FIND A WAY and Focus Music would like to assist that as much as we're able.

Share and Enjoy!

Enjoy and SUPPORT!!!

Below is a selection of upcoming shows from Focus alumni as well as a bunch of other online concert listings for your to explore. With almost any show there will be the option to support the artist financially, but remember to "Like", "Share" and "Follow" too! Join those mailing lists for when these artists are able to come see us again!

The Takoma Park Folk Festival

Focus is a proud sponsor of this year's Takoma Park Folk Festival! It will be streamed Live on Sunday, September 12th, 2021 from 4-9pm ET.

Reflecting the fluid pandemic conditions, the 2021 Festival will feature its usual diverse range of music, including traditional and new takes on American and international folk music and other genres, but will be live-streamed, with the possibility of in-person events contingent on public health guidance.

A Juried Craft Show is also being organized, which will be held in person at the Takoma Park Community Center from noon to 6:30 pm.

Please check their website for updates on the 2021 program schedule and performers.
