Stay tuned for our announcement of the performers for this years festival!
We are moving our music festival to the Nimbus Arts Center in downtown Jersey City. This is an exciting change to a new, custom built performance space. We will again have the beautifully original stage backdrops, as well as artwork throughout the venue. Several delightful food vendors and artisan shops will participate and, of course, the much requested, free music workshops will continue to be a major feature at the festival.
A blend of art, community and music

LAST YEAR'S PERFORMERS
“Hudson West Folk Festival, in just its third year, has managed to assemble a mind-boggling array of singer/songwriter talent. Just saying the names Mary Gauthier, David Olney and Sam Baker in the same sentence is akin to quoting from the Book of Tao. Then you throw in Vance Gilbert and Jonathan Byrd? Just say the word sublime. Susan McKeown has a Grammy? Say what? Jean Rohe … is the folk version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. My heart explodes. Taarka blew minds at NERFA last year and Sophie Buskin — the daughter of David Buskin — is folk royalty and my favorite new brilliant singer/songwriter. If eating french fries is your idea of “Francophile,” then it’s time you got a taste of the brilliant French Canadian band, Les Poules a’ Colin”
