Folk Music Ontario membership fees will be increasing by 10% effective April 1, 2014. FMO/OCFF has not increased membership fees for the last five years. An increase is necessary to provide all members with their benefits, as well as a high-quality conference and year-round programming. Year-round programming starts this year with a Festival Members Retreat taking place at the end of May.
