Friends of Folk - a not-for-profit organisation - 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 over fourteen years and

more than 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
