Folk on Foot Front Room Festival 2
With concerts being cancelled in these trying times, we are delighted to welcome a positive ray of sunshine: Folk on Foot Front Room Festival 2. This takes place on May 25th (Spring Bank Holiday in the UK), starting at 2pm BST. It will be streamed on the Folk on Foot YouTube Channel and Facebook page and will be free to watch.
Kathryn joins a stunning line up of artists, each of whom have recorded a 30 minute set from their front rooms (though Kathryn’s is from her kitchen — quite possibly multi-tasking!). The fabulous line up consists of Cara Dillon and Sam Lakeman, Chris Wood, Duncan Chisholm, Eliza Carthy, Frank Turner and Jess Guise, Gwilym Bowen Rhys, John Smith, Johnny Flynn, Kate Rusby and Damien O’Kane, Kitty Macfarlane, O’Hooley and Tidow, Richard Thompson and Zara Phillips, Rioghnach Connoly and Ellis Davies and the online premiere of a behind the scenes film of the Unthanks’ last tour.
Folk on Foot has launched a crowdfunding appeal. Half the money raised will go to the charity Help Musicians — which supports musicians suffering financial hardship — and half will be divided between the artists taking part in the festival. You can donate at folkonfoot.com/festival.
