Building community through music, one heart at a time.
For over 45 years, Artichoke Community Music has provided a creative space for people of all ages and background to gather, play and share traditional music from all cultures. Artichoke Music is a non-profit music organization dedicated to building community through music by providing rewarding experiences for people to discover, learn and play music. We offer classes that celebrate the folk music tradition, a local community music store uniquely serving the folk music tradition in Portland, an instrument lending library to make instruments available to all who want to play, and we provide an affordable, comfortable space for music teachers.
