Due to the uncertainty with Covid and it’s fluctuating restrictions, Windsor Folk is in a state of suspension.
While decisions are being considered, we are so very grateful for the wonderful evenings of music we shared with you.
Make some scones, put the coffee on and listen to some music.
Maybe even look up some of our past performers and add them to your playlist.
Stay well!

...where music comes home




Mackenzie Hall in Windsor


Windsor Folk has proudly hosted monthly performances for the past 26 years at the historic Mackenzie Hall Cultural Centre, which is located at 3277 Sandwich Street West, in Windsor.

Mackenzie Hall was built in 1855-1856 by Alexander Mackenzie, who became the second Prime Minister of Canada in 1873.


As a not for profit organization, we strive to offer a warm and inviting listening space for audiences and performers alike. We welcome both beginner and seasoned musicians to perform in our coffee-house-like setting.

Our audiences help support this wonderful venue with our ‘pass the hat’ policy. Funds are  used to rent our beautiful space, replace audio and lighting equipment, pay for  promotional costs, and provide baked goods at our concession. We also encourage our patrons to ‘ go green’ and bring their own coffee mug. Ours is an inclusive and wheelchair accessible venue.

Windsor Folk Performance


The Windsor and surrounding area is  full of talented seasoned and aspiring young musicians.

As a result, Windsor Folk continues to offer audiences a vibrant lineup of local and distant musicians every month. There is no cost to attend other than to contribute to our pass-the-hat policy to support our venue.  We welcome your feedback and questions.

Windsor Folk is the best of grassroots community support in a great historical setting. It is the place I grew my songwriting and performance skills. It’s one of my favorite listening rooms because folks really listen!

The Windsor Folk Music & Arts Society is one of the best places in Ontario to see local music. The audience is attentive, the executive members are very supportive and the Friday night Acoustic Stage evening is professionally run. I have performed at the Acoustic Stage and in the Showcase Concerts as a feature performer, and the experience has always been wonderful!

I always look forward to playing for a supportive crowd that really listens to the songs, and the good people at Windsor Folk do just that.

Awesome experience when we played Windsor Folk. We met wonderful people, the audience was a great listening audience, and the volunteers treated us so well. Everyone really cared and it showed.
