Future Folk

With Future Folk, Wild Up creates a communal concert of sound/noise/experience that celebrates old-world ways of living in the modern era. Together we will explore the music from Ancient India, modern California, post-war New York, and from American composers that envision a future form of music rooted in folk ethos. As moderns, we stand on the shoulders of the ancients. Their music changes us. Compels us to make and unites us in being. A secular ritual where the audience is indoctrinated into a cult of love and joy, that the band is already part of. By the end of the show, the entire audience is invited onto the stage and we all try to end the world together. In Future Folk, we become one.
