FMO Update – COVID-19

Following recommendations from public health officials, Folk Music Ontario staff will be closing the office and working from home until further notice. The Health and safety of our staff and our communities is a priority.

During this time, we will be checking email, but will have less access to voicemail. We will continue to work to ensure that each of our members is helped and taken care of. We ask that you please be patient with any delays in response.
