Looking for a great way to spend a Friday night…for free?! Then be sure to check out Free Music Fridays at the American Folk Art Museum! The UWS museum states that the “music featured at the Free Music Fridays series thematically reflects the spirit of the self-taught art on view at the museum”. There is a donation-based cash wine bar for music goers and admission is always free!
The Free Music Friday performances run from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, with three performers every evening! Each set is 35 minutes giving concertgoers a great sampling of music! Free Music Fridays are held most Fridays in the American Folk Art Museum at 2 Lincoln Square (Columbus Avenue between 65th and 66th Streets).
Free Music Fridays has been made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
