The Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap happens the 1st Saturday of each month (except July & August) at The Nacul Center in Amherst, Mass., 7:00-9:00 p.m. Folksinger and songwriter Paul Kaplan is the regular host.

There is no admission fee — a hat is passed during the guest artist's performance for donations. $10 is suggested. The guests will often have CDs available to buy.
The Song & Story Swaps are held near downtown Amherst at The Nacul Center, a former Methodist Chapel that has been renovated into studios, a gallery and a lovely 60-seat performance space.
The Nacul Center is located at 592 Main St. in Amherst, Mass., one-and-a-half blocks east of the railroad tracks.
