The society formerly known as "Portland Folklore Society" is now "doing business as" the Portland FolkMusic Society.
Why the change? Many members felt that "folklore" implied something old and tired: "Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore..." (from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe)
