3RFS is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1988, serving the folk community near the confluence of the Yakima, Snake and Columbia rivers in SE Washington state (map)

We present concerts, coffeehouses, song circles, and the annual Tumbleweed Music Festival (In its 22nd year in 2019.)

SURVEY: As the December FolkTalk mentions, 3RFS is conducting a survey. Many different volunteer opportunities are available and all of them will help keep 3RFS going strong. We are asking everyone, 3RFS members or non-members, who care about promoting folk music in our community to respond online by filling in the on-line questionnaire: HERE
