Our beloved Folk Summer School is back for 2024. There’ll be music, dance and song – for adults of all abilities – led by a crack team of tutors who have detailed knowledge and extensive experience of a wide spectrum of folk music. Throughout the week, you will work towards a full-group ensemble piece which includes the whole summer school cohort; a powerful way of bringing everything and everyone together in one shared experience, allowing you to learn about how to structure a performance, work together, use all levels of skills (in small and large groups), and create something that’s amazing and all-inclusive!
“Friendly and welcoming group of people, plenty of laughs, energetic dancing and really enjoyable sessions in the bar afterwards!” Participant
Who is it for?
Singers, dancers and musicians of all levels of experience; there’s something for everyone!
Choose from classes in guitar, fiddle, piano accordion, singing, or dance.
We will have a fantastic team of tutors who will be working together to give you the best possible experience in a mutually supportive atmosphere. The exact tutor line-up is still TBC but in the past, the team has included Jo Freya, Kerry Fletcher, David Delarre, Paul Hutchinson, Sophy Ball, Kev Dempsey, Kirsty Martin, and John Dipper.
