In the last 3 years we've visited most of the US and Canada during one of our Just Plain Folks Roadtrips. We've hosted over 200 Showcases featuring over 5000 artist performances. We also host workshops, chapter meetings, networking events and gatherings of all types and even take a little time for tourism when we can. We hope to expand our Roadtrips to include Europe and Australia as our membership grows in those areas. If you'd like to get involved, follow the listings of the Roadtrips in our newsletter and sign up for events anywhere you are interested in participating. Below, you can see some pictures of the folks we've met and things we've seen along the way

We're all in this together!
