The Folk Arts Society is delighted to present the 10th Anniversary Concert of the Young Folk at the Hall program, an idea that came into being through the efforts and passion of Fergus O’Byrne. Over the past ten years we have seen dozens of young people come together to experience the joy of making music with others, not only in St. John’s but also in communities throughout the province. Some of them returned year after year until they became mentors themselves, helping younger folk gain the confidence to engage in public performance. One of the most important goals of the Folk Arts Society is to provide opportunities for our intangible cultural heritage to be passed to successive generation and Young Folk at the Hall is an outstanding example of this effort. Congratulations to Fergus and a large vote of thanks for all the work he has undertaken and the time he has dedicated to Young Folk at the Hall in the past ten years!
