The main factor that led to the creation of the People’s Folk Music Festival was the passion for this musical genre and the impact it had on its founders. Ever since they were children, their parents made sure that they would learn the beneficial effects that folk music has over its audience and to this end, they were enrolled in the musical school, where they managed to better understand folk music.
Since all of the founders of the festival attended the musical school, when they decided to start gathering people for sharing information and performing live folk performances, they were well accustomed to the details that a musical festival involves. The plan was determined quite early in their friendship and sooner than expected, they were making their gatherings official. It didn’t took long before they were converted to festival status, and this significant step in their brief history has made all the difference when it comes to folk music in that region of the country.
Because of their initiative and the creation of the People’s Folk Music Festival, all the bands and folk musicians that were passionate and devoted were given the chance to meet in an organized environment, where they could share their common passion and perform in an unhindered manner. The same growing passion for folk music was also the determinant factor that led to the increase of the festival’s popularity, which increased in just a few years from a local-known event to an international, multicultural gathering held each year.
There’s no wonder that the folk bands and musicians all over the world would honor the founding members with their presence and performance, and in order to express their gratitude towards the musicians, the founding members decided to create fund raisers and offer all the earnings to artist that required support for debut.
