The best kept secret in music


"Concerts on the Green -- Calimesa, CA"

"Your professionalism and stage presentation was appreciated by everyone in attendance. Your song selections really reflected the 'Folk' era and everyone enjoyed the audience participation numbers." - Walt Pyle, Event Coordinator

"Escondido Public Library 2006 and 2007"

"This year we advertised their performance and word of their concert spread. Our audience must have been awaiting their return. The June attendance was a standing room only crowd which overflowed our 250 capacity auditorium. - Cynthia Smith

"Noble House Concert Venue"

"We had such an overwhelming reservation response to our notice that The Folk Collection would be playing our Noble House Concert, that we scheduled an earlier second show -- something I have never done before. The Folk Collection was one of the most entertaining and crowd pleasing acts we have presented. The trio connected immediately with the audience, which included young children, and brought them all "into" their performance. Their humor and surprise last song -- a satire on rap music -- was warmly received by adults and children. We are having them back as soon as my "one-year" between shows rule is met." - Barbara Greenspan

"Blue Ridge Pickin' Parlor -- Granada Hills, CA"

Blue Ridge Pickin' Parlor in Granada Hills, California (normally a bluegrass house, but, for us, a folk club!):
"[They] gave an outstanding performance at our concert. Their more than two hour show was extremely entertaining and left the audience very satisfied…We have been in business for thirty years, selling instruments, teaching all string instruments, and hosting a once a month acoustic concert. We know what works with our audiences, and The Folk Collection really worked. We will have them back in the regular "cycle" and recommend them to other venues." - Ric Griffin


We have three CDs that we have available for sale during our shows. Two are from The Folk Collection, including a live recording, and a solo effort by Tony Unger.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Folk Collection grew up with the melodies of The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul and Mary as well as John Denver, Hoyt Axton and others. We love to recreate the harmonies, the stories and the charm of this music. Our shows are nostalgic and humorous and thoroughly entertaining.
