The Muse Machine
Since its inception in 1982, The Muse Machine has grown from a cadre of volunteers working out of the founder’s basement in Dayton, Ohio, to a multi-city network of professionally staffed programs reaching hundreds of thousands of young people each year.
Cityfolk has been Dayton’s premier traditional and ethnic arts organization for more than 25 years. In 2005, Cityfolk won the first CMAcclaim Award, awarded by Chamber Music America for outstanding presenters in the ensemble music field. Through its year-round season of concerts, in-school educational activities, the annual Cityfolk Festival and other programs, Cityfolk brings the Dayton area the finest in traditional music and dance from around the world.
