The Folkstudio was born in 1960 in a cellar in Via Garibaldi (in the Roman district of Trastevere) and then moved in 1972 to Via Sacchi (Trastevere district) and, finally, in the last few years of activity (until 1988) in Via Frangipane (always in the Trastevere district)

The Folkstudio has been managed since 1967 by Giancarlo Cesaroni (following the return to America of the founder of the club, the African-American painter and musician Harold Bradley). With this management, starting from the early seventies, the Folkstudio becomes the reference point of the transversal and traditional musical offer underground of the capital. There are several musicians from the Roman jazz scene who perform in the Roman club: Massimo Urbani, Tommaso Vittorini, Enzo Pietropaoli, Enrico Pieranunzi, Franco D'Andrea, Maurizio Giammarco, Franco Cerri, as well as the experimental orchestras of Giancarlo Schiaffini, Roberto Laneri, Giancarlo Gazzani and Antenore Tecardi. The folkstudio also becomes the meeting place of the "Gruppo Romano Free Jazz", which includes: Mario Schiano, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Marcellus Melis and Franco Pecori

Furthermore, Pepito Pignatelli and Giancarlo Cesaroni, in the period between the closure of theBlue Note” and the opening of the “Music Inn”, collaborate in the organization at the Folkstudio of a series of concerts by prestigious names on the international jazz scene, including Art Farmer, Slide Hampton and Tete Montoliu
