As the labor of love of a former booking agent, Folk All Y’all gives 100% of ticket or donation revenue for each show to the artists performing to help them cover gas, food, motels, truck stop showers, et cetera. Above all else, we’re here to help musicians make a living, but in a near-tie for first priority is making sure our guests have amazing experiences.
Since 2014, we’ve been hosting stunningly talented singer-songwriters who, in most cases, would not have taken the chance to play Memphis, because as you might imagine, it can be exceptionally difficult to share thoughtful, literary, innovative work to a bunch of strangers in a noisy room. We give them an alternative – a respectful, appreciative community – and the response from both artists and audiences has been overwhelmingly positive.
If you’d like to help support what we do AND get access to exclusive show extras and swag, good news! You can do that by becoming a patron.
