Swallow Hill Music Association
|Swallow Hill was founded in 1979 to preserve and foster roots, folk and traditional music from around the world.
Swallow Hill's roots began in the 1960s with Harry Tuft's Denver Folklore Center, located in the Swallow Hill area of Denver (named for 19th century builder, George Swallow). The Swallow Hill Music Association was established as a non-profit organization in 1979, relocating several times in its first decade - from Broadway to the Capitol Hill Community Center, to South Pearl Street, to its current location at 71 East Yale in 1998. Over the years, Swallow Hill has grown to become the second largest folk and acoustic music organization in the United States. Swallow Hill serves as a regional resource for the presentation, teaching, preservation, and encouragement of folk music and dance.
Swallow Hill's operations are run by a dedicated and energetic Board of Directors (who volunteer their time) and an outstanding group of staff members.
