Play by ear and develop your creativity, explore folk music, and learn from inspiring professional musicians.

To register for a Youth Folk Sampler Day you will need to:
• be aged 12-18
• live in England
• be able to play confidently on your chosen instrument
Each Sampler Day features:
• music workshops with folk musicians Sam Partridge, Rob Harbron and Miranda Rutter

Youth Folk Sampler Days are FREE to attend and open to players of any instrument. Playing and learning will be done by ear.
If you’ll be aged 14-18 on 1 September 2020 and you’re interested in joining the National Youth Folk Ensemble, you’ll need to attend a Sampler Day to start the audition process.
