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
