    2015 Fall Session: The Traveling Kind

    The Family Folk Machine starts rehearsals on August 23 for our fall session, “The Traveling Kind.” One of the purposes of our intergenerational, non-auditioned choir is to explore American culture and history through song, and this fall we will reflect on the joys of rambling around and the important place of transportation in American life.
