Folk Music Research Survey

Friday, November 2, 2018

As Folk Alliance International enters its fourth decade, we are embarking on a landmark research project with a survey of the folk music field to assess its relationship to the broader music industry.

To do this we have partnered with acclaimed stakeholder research firm, Slover Linett (whose notable past clients include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Levitt Pavilions, The Smithsonian Museum, and more).

We invite all artists, industry, and venue/festival presenters who represent folk music to participate (inclusive of Appalachian, Americana, Blues, Bluegrass, Celtic, Cajun, Francophone, Global Roots, Indigenous, Latin, Old Time, Traditional, Singer-Songwriter, and Spoken Word).


The high-level goals of this study are to:

  • Lead a responsive dialogue about the evolving state of the folk field.
  • Encourage the folk community to self-reflect and engage in a deeper understanding of itself.
  • Build meaningful conversation and collaboration between artists, presenters, and industry.

Click here to complete the survey (which will take about 10-12 minutes). All responses are anonymous and will not be shared with any other organizations.

The deadline to complete the survey is November 9, 2018. All participants will be entered in a drawing for one of five $100 gift cards.
