Reclaiming Folk: A Celebration of People of Color in Folk Music is a celebration of people of color in Folk Music. Folk Music is traditional music, folk music is storytelling, folk music is music of the people, folk music is a voice for what’s happening in the world today. This program was created by Naomi Westwater and made available through several grants. The series is on tour throughout Massachusetts to bring awareness and celebration to the origin of Folk. This event is funded by the Chatham Cultural Council.

Naomi Westwater holds a Master of Music in Contemporary Performance and Production from Berklee College of Music and she is a part of The Club Passim Folk Collective, where she produces Re-Imagining Lilith Fair: a tribute to the feminist music scene of the 1990s with an intersection lens for today. Naomi was nominated for a 2021 and 2022 Boston Music Award for best singer-songwriter, and has been featured in The Boston Globe, Under The Radar, WBUR, WGBH, and The Bluegrass Situation.
