Bringing music to the Valley

Yes, We changed our name!

The Lantern Folk Roots Music Society
(formerly Kelowna Folk Club) is a non-profit volunteer-driven organization dedicated to the promotion and fostering of live music and its cultural heritage. See the About Us page for more.

With great support from our members,
most of our concerts are SOLD OUT performances.
Our house concert attendees have raved about the experience.
We announce these events as we move foward, but please visit us regularly before the event sells out. This is a fabulous way to see these entertainers in a unique intimate setting.
