The group features banjo, guitar, mandolin and fiddle solos, playing musical favorites from the 19th and 20th century.
Directed by Mark Geslison, BYU’s Folk Music is composed of seven talented instrumentalists and vocalists who sing and play a variety of traditional folk instruments, such as the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, guitar, bass, harmonica, accordion and Celtic drum.
Initially organized to accompany BYU's American Folk Dance Ensemble at international folk festivals throughout the world, the BYU Folk Music Ensemble has become a powerful performing group, entertaining audiences throughout the United States and the world.
