The first Lancashire Youth Folk Group session of 2020 will take place on Saturday 1 February at Lostock Hall Academy, in Preston. All young instrumentalists and singers are welcome to join us.
Following two successful projects, Lancashire Sagas in Summer 2019 and the Jullundar Ballad in the Autumn, this term the group will focus on learning a set of tunes and songs, both from Lancashire and further afield to perform at events this summer.
We’re also delighted to announce that Radio 2 Folk Award winners, The Young’uns, will be patrons of Lancashire Youth Folk Group and we look forward to working with them later this Spring.
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.
