In 2019, the Boch Center expanded and launched the Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame (FARHOF), Boston's newest cultural and educational initiative. It celebrates the lifeblood of America’s musical and cultural heritage.
Led by legendary musicians and music executives including Keb Mo’, Joan Baez and Noel Paul Stookey and curated by Deana McCloud and Bob Santelli of the Museum Collective, FARHOF is dedicated to honoring history, while also building the foundation of the next generation of Folk, Americana, and Roots musicians. Housed in the Wang Theatre, FARHOF celebrates Folk, Americana and Roots music through displays, memorabilia, artifacts, events, lectures, exhibits and concerts.
“Music connects all of us and keeps us a civilized society,” said Josiah Spaulding, President and CEO of the Boch Center. “These genres of music, in particular, have historically provided an outlet for individuals of all races, classes and locations to express their highest joys and their deepest sorrows, and we are thrilled to provide a new cultural destination that will educate people of all ages about the important influence of these genres on all music today.”
