The Monadnock Folklore Society has been deeply affected by COVID-19. All contra dances and concerts have been canceled since mid-March 2020. MFS events fit into the category of “Super Spreader activities,” in that each typically involves individuals being physically close and either breathing with exertion or singing out loud. These activities have been shown to be especially effective for transmitting the novel coronavirus.
Thus, all contra dances and Sacred Harp sings are canceled indefinitely and will not resume until permitted.
As of March 2021, MFS is hoping to hold a couple of outdoor concerts this summer.
