Folk from the tradition nights run upstairs at Oakes Barn, on the third Wednesday of the month. The music start at 8.00 pm and continues till 10.30 pm with a mid-evening break
Folk from the tradition nights have a traditional focus. We welcome singers and musicians who work within the forms that are found in the traditions of these islands or who draw on those forms for their inspiration.
On these evenings, we provide an MC but no PA – performances are unplugged. We usually ask artists to perform a total of three or four songs, tunes or items. There may be some flexibility at the discretion of the MC, but we will usually ask you to give two of your pieces in each half of the evening.
There may be opportunities for performers from the floor to provide a song or two – and we may invite booked-in performers to play more pieces if there is time, so have an extra tune or two ready.
