50% Folk is four individuals out of central Wisconsin who enjoy singing and playing traditional music. We are comprised of Tanya, Mark, Dean, & Wayne. Our origins date back nearly fifty years, when several of us played together in a number of groups during the folk music revival of the 60’s.
We were reunited as the result of a fortieth high school class reunion, nearly ten years ago, and have remained together ever since. 50% Folk enjoys playing an eclectic range of classic folk, country, bluegrass, blues, and gospel music.
The group is motivated by a love of traditional music and incorporates strong vocals accompanied by a variety of acoustic instruments, including wash tub and (electric) bass. We truly enjoy the opportunity to share our music with others, and are committed to doing so for many years to come.
