About Us

The Folk School Coffee Parlor, located in Ludlow, KY, just minutes from downtown Cincinnati, focuses on exceptional coffee supplied by Deeper Roots and hand-crafted foods and goods from local artisans and retailers. In conjunction with daily retail business, workshops and classes are offered regularly in traditional instruments and art/folk history, ranging from novices to master classes available to advanced players.


Every age is welcome and encouraged to participate in suited programs that span anywhere from a single evening to 4-week-long workshop series. From time to time the Folk School becomes an intimate performance space for pre-sold shows featuring some of the region's best singers, songwriters, and performers.
