What is Common Fence Music?

Common Fence Music is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.

Common Fence Music began as an activity of the Common Fence Point Improvement Association in 1993 but became a separate organization soon after. Today we work side by side with our friends in the Association to keep the hall vibrant for all who rent the room for various functions. Common Fence Point Improvement Association Community Hall is a special place as this neighborhood community gathering spot was built as a country music dance hall and it has great live sound. The atmosphere is congenial with tables fanning out around the stage. And, there is plenty of free parking.

Common Fence Music Showcases the Best in
Folk, Roots and World Music.
