Matt's Web Site


E-mail Webmaster



The Folks Like Us website provides monthly listings of folk music concerts, workshops, dances, festivals, and other related events in southeastern Michigan and adjacent areas. We invite local folk music venues, organizations, and musicians to submit event information to the webmaster Judy Dyki ( to keep the site as comprehensive as possible.

Southeastern Michigan is so fortunate to have such a rich and active folk community; we hope this site will serve as a central resource to help spread the word and support everyone involved in keeping folk music and traditions thriving in this area. Please let us know if there is other information that you would find useful on this site.

This website got its start as the site for the "Folks Like Us" radio program, hosted by Matt Watroba for more than 22 years on WDET-FM in Detroit (with a brief stint on WEMU-FM in Ypsilanti, Michigan). Because of the many requests to keep this information available, playlists from 1999-2009 and Top Ten CD lists from 1994-2009 are still stored on this site. There is also a link to Matt Watroba's own website.

NEW! Join Matt on his new radio program "Folk with Matt Watroba" Sunday evenings 6:00-8:00 p.m. on WKAR-FM, Michigan State University public radio, 90.5 FM,

Thanks, as always, for your support!



Larry McDaniel, Matt Watroba, Robert Jones.
Final show at WDET on December 20, 2009.
