A Tribute to Rolf Kaufman

Rolf Kaufman has dedicated his life to Folkmoot. At 87, Rolf still volunteers almost full time to get our international groups to Western North Carolina each year. Born in Germany, Rolf spent the early part of his life fleeing from the Nazis with his family, eventually ending up in France and then the United States. He accomplished the American Dream by becoming an Executive at the Wellco factory in Hazelwood. Affectionately called “Mr. Folkmoot” Rolf has been around since the beginning and knows the ins and out of Folkmoot better than almost anyone. Rolf is loved tremendously at Folkmoot, and the staff doesn’t know what they would do without him!
