The Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap happens on the 1st Saturday of each month (except July and August) at The Nacul Center in Amherst, Mass., 7:00-9:00 p.m. Folksinger and songwriter Paul Kaplan is the regular host.
Please note that while pandemic precautions are in effect, the Song & Story Swap will be conducted over Zoom. You will find a button to register for the next Swap on our home page.

There is no admission fee – a hat is passed during the guest artist's performance for donations, all of which go to the artist. $5-$10 is suggested. The guests will often have CDs available to buy.
The Nacul Center is located at 592 Main St. in Amherst, Mass., one-and-a-half blocks east of the railroad tracks. Parking is available in the lot behind the building. Please do not park along the side of North Whitney St.
