Porch Stomp is rain or shine!

Porch Stomp is an organization committed to the advancement of the New York City American folk music and dance community by sponsoring key public events such as the annual folk celebration on Governors Island, Flatfoot Flatbush in Downtown Brooklyn as well as a myriad of other networking and performance-based events functioning out of the Haylaught, their lovely space in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn.  Working hard, they promote the growing NYC folk scene by highlighting both traditional as well as contemporary folk music through unique, often site-specific events that range from concerts and workshops to community events and happenings.
