You can read more about these incredibly talented young artists and the ideas behind the ever-evolving Superfolkus here. Kathryn's just presented the Young Folk Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Playing folk and traditional music she said, "is about solidarity, mutual support, having fun, learning things, making music, making friends, making connections... never lose that excitement and that involvement with the music – it's such a great thing."
