ABOUST SULLIVAN SISTERS
Chicago's teen bluegrass duo, The Sullivan Sisters. Originally from North Caroline, but now based in Chicago, these sisters are excited to be playing here in Fayetteville Arkansas where they have family ties.

The Sullivan Sisters have dazzled audiences since childhood with their unique blend of sister harmonies and fast bluegrass picking. Born and raised in North Carolina, Soraya and Luciya Sullivan developed their love for American Folk and Bluegrass music at a young age, when they began guitar and banjo lessons at ages eight and six.

Now teens living and playing music in the Chicago area, The Sullivan Sisters have been featured at Merlefest, on the Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, IBMA’s Bluegrass Live Festival, and Cedar Point Amusement Park as a band in residence. They have been awarded contest prizes at Rockygrass 2023 (First prize, banjo; Third prize, flatpicking guitar), and in the youth contests at the Galax Old Fiddlers Convention and the Mount Airy Bluegrass and Old-Time Fiddlers Convention.

FOLK SCHOOL OF FAYETTEVILLE is a 501(c)3 non-profit music organization popularly known as Fayetteville Roots. 
For over a 13 years we have carried out our mission to connnect community through music and food. Over that time we have fostered concerts & community/educational events in Northwest Arkansas. We believe in our music community and strive to create opportunies for connections and learning. 

In 2022 one of our signature events, the Fayetteville Roots Festival, was paused. 2023 brings a new chapter and a new location for our organization. The Folk School of Fayetteville, located in the historic Walker Stone House near the Fayetteville Square, will open in late Spring 2023 with space for lessons, classes, workshops, jams, and more.


What is a Folk School and why do you need to know about it?
Folk Schools originated as a way for communities to learn from each other, especially vital to communities that didn’t have access to “formal education”.     Folk Schools create an environment that encourages People teaching People, rather than a classical education approach of Professor and Student.

Folk School of Fayetteville is continuing this model by providing space for musicians to learn from each other, for new players to learn, and for long time musicians to develop new technique and skills — and this is available to ALL the FOLKS (people).  Folk School is open to all genres, identities, and cultures, and is excited to host music that is as dynamic and varied as our community.


Folk School of Fayetteville is buit on the body of work (13 years) of Fayetteville Roots Festival, and is fostered on many of its guiding principles:
Create opportunities for our music community
Support and present multivaried music genres, identities, & cultures
Commitment to free & low-cost community learning
Creative re-use of existing urban spaces
Collaboration with the community & music/arts organizations
Low waste & low impact sustainable events
