Common Fence Music is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and preserving diverse folk music traditions by creating community-based opportunities for cultural exchange. Through our concert series and education programs now being streamed, we bring people together to share in the joy and excitement of live music.
It may surprise you to learn that only about 50% of CFM’s expenses are covered by ticket revenue in normal years. This year monetary and in-kind
gifts are all the more vital in powering CFM's pivot to live streaming and support of artists. Generous individuals, businesses and foundations in the area. Each and every donation we receive is used to keep our programs going.

A donor note...CFM honors a dear friend lost and longtime member of our volunteer family, Jedd Sullivan. Jedd was an incredibly kind, funny, gentle, and generous individual whose absence is very much felt by all at CFM. Honoring the spirit of their loved one, the Graham Sullivan family - including Graham, Trajan, Victoria, Connor, and April - have very generously donated this matching gift annually as a way to keep Jedd's love of music alive for years to come.
"Give and give, until you go away." - Jedd Sullivan
