Welcome to Music Folk.

The St. Louis source for Folk and Old Time instruments.

We are currently in need of a new fiddle teacher! If you are one, or know of one please contact us!

We have turned 50!!!

Since 1973, we have been helping the community with their musical needs.  We have taught, inspired and nurtured local musicians. We have repaired and restored their instruments.  We have been a “go to” place for traveling musicians, collectors and historians. What’s more, is we have no plans to slow down! We are here to assist our client, old and new. Whether you are on the hunt for an instrument, have one in need of repair or want to learn how to play, think Music Folk first!

The Webster/Kirkwood Times newspaper did a story about us being around for 50 years! Click here to see the article Webster/Kirkwood Times Article

For the occasion, we have made a LIMITED EDITION commemorative t-shirt.  Get them while before they are gone. 50th Anniversary Music Folk T-Shirt Own a part of history!

We have started a Scrapbook page (Scrapbook of Memories) If you have old photos, newspaper clippings or a nice memory you would like to share with us, please send them to musicfolk@musicfolk.com


We are open from 10-8, Monday thru Thursday and 10-6, Friday and Saturday.
