Lancashire Youth Folk Group

Lancashire Youth Folk Group welcomes young instrumentalists and singers interested in playing folk music. Alongside exploring music from all over the UK with a focus on the communities of Lancashire, the group also create new work and collaborate with professional musicians including Ibrahim Aziz and Radio 2 Folk Award winners the Young’uns.

We welcome any instrument or voice type. To get the most out of this opportunity we recommend you have reached at least an intermediate level on your instrument/voice, but previous folk experience is not essential and nor is the ability to read notation.
