Explore English folk music, learn from inspiring tutors and play with other young musicians from your region. Take part in a day of creative folk music workshops and, if you want to, audition for the National Youth Folk Ensemble.
Each May half-term we run free Youth Folk Sampler Days across England for 14-18 year old instrumentalists.
Sampler Days have taken place in Bristol, Birmingham, Basingstoke, Cambridge, Derby, Didcot, Exeter, Gateshead, Leeds, London, Sheffield, Manchester, Okehampton, and York.
The next Sampler Days will take place from 25 May to 2 June 2019. Look out for bookings opening in early 2019.
I absolutely loved this experience and it was very empowering playing with others, playing traditional English tunes but making them our own
