Your nonprofit music service, for all things folky (plus some timely advice for the weekend).... 

     These are extraordinary times. Sometimes you just wish you could escape from it all. Well, you CAN'T! But you don't have to think about it EVERY MINUTE! Take a break from worry, close that browser, shut down your computer, put your Blueberry in a drawer, try a little "Music Therapy".
Music Therapy is "the use of music and music related activities to modify ineffective learning patterns, to promote emotional, mental, social and physical growth and to develop non-musical goals." ( It's actually an established healthcare profession, REALLY!  "Music therapy interventions" can promote wellness, manage stress, alleviate pain, enhance memory- wow, it's practically like a patent medicine, too good to be true! And you don't need a prescription- get up, turn on your radio or your stereo, take a break, you'll be glad you did.
OK, it won't change the world, but you'll feel better, and when you come back online, extend the positive benefits with a visit to efolkMusic. Our filtered roster of exceptional musicians and their music is like a breath of fresh air- good AND good for you.
