Olive Street Presents, Ltd., (Est 2021) is a non-profit 501c-3 organization based in Pittsburg, KS. Our Mission is to be a catalyst for live music presentation and educational programs in the folk tradition. We welcome collaboration with local entities to broaden, strengthen, and enrich our community.
Olive Street Presents is the next generation of Olive Street House Concerts, which since 2009 has produced more than 100 shows featuring award-winning musical artists from across the county and abroad. Olive Street Presents supports live music, community, and culture by creating safe, inclusive, and respectful environments for musicians and their audiences.
What is FOLK?
We define folk broadly as “the music of the people.” We embrace a diverse array of subgenres including, but not limited to, Appalachian, Americana, Blues, Bluegrass, Celtic, Cajun, Country, Global Roots, Old-Time, Singer-Songwriter, Traditional, Zydeco, and various fusions.
Why Do We Do it? Because small towns are often passed over by national touring companies and musicians in favor of larger venues, more convenient routing, and more potential revenue. Although performance spaces exist within our community, most lack the resources to embark on programming, instead serving in a venue rental capacity.
Instead of leaving town to hear great musical performances, we aspire to create a live music culture in Pittsburg.
