Friends of Folk - bringing the best in folk, folk/rock, acoustic, singer/songwriter and roots music
Friends of Folk started promoting folk music with what was intended to be a one-off gig in
Preston with Steeleye Span legend Maddy Prior
But that night was too good not to repeat and ten years and over 150 gigs on it has been
one of the most satisfying ventures I have been involved with.
To date the artists Friends of Folk has brought to the area reads like
a “who’s who” of the folk music world and there will be more exciting
music and song to come
