Welcome to the Virginia Folk Music Association

We are a nonprofit organization focused on preserving and promoting Virginia’s heritage of roots music to include bluegrass, folk, traditional country and gospel.

No matter where in Virginia you may live, the FFMA welcomes you! As a resident of our beautiful state you are not only eligible for membership, we strongly encourage you to become an active member of the Virginia Folk Music Association. Did you know that we have an annual bluegrass festival festival where you can enjoy full hookups for your camper? You can bring your instruments and join in the active jam sessions while meeting new friends and renewing old friendships.

We encourage you to watch our covered stage show and don’t forget to register to enter our official State Competition for Bluegrass, Folk and Traditional Country and Gospel music held just outside of Richmond, Virginia in Chesterfield County only minutes from I-64, I-95, US 460 and US-360!
