Old Town School of Folk Music

Old Town School of Folk Music Review

Old Town School of Folk Music, Chicago's first and oldest folk-music school, has served as folk central in the city since it opened in 1957. This welcoming spot in Lincoln Square hosts outstanding performances by national and local acts in an intimate-feeling 420-seat concert hall boasting excellent acoustics. A major expansion in 2012 added a new, environmentally friendly facility across the street, with a 150-seat performance hall and acoustically engineered classrooms.
