The Family Folk Chorale was founded with the belief that everyone can sing and that people of all ages singing together is powerful music. We are a multi-generational group of singers of all ages and a band comprised of some of Boston's most versatile musicians. Skillful and sensitive arrangements by director Chris Eastburn provide opportunities to hear individual voices in solo and small groups as well as harmonically rich, full group refrains. Membership includes whole families as well as individuals and is not audition-based.

In each of three concert programs per year, we explore a genre, theme, or the work of a particular folk artist or artists. Each concert features 12-16 songs that express the full range of the songwriter or theme. Past concerts have delved into the music of Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, the Weavers, Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, Joni Mitchell and Carole King, Bill Staines, Elvis, Beatles and Dylan and past themes have included "The Arc of Life", "Gracias a la Vida: Songs from Latin America", "Bluegrass", "Songs from Appalachia".

We perform regularly including sold-out shows at the Regent Theatre in Arlington and the National Heritage Museum, and places like Boston's Faneuil Hall, the Portland Children's Museum, and the historic Club Passim in Harvard Square.
