Beverley Folk Festival In Tune With Young Musicians

Beverley Folk Festival In Tune With Young Musicians

Folk Festival 2016 is just around the corner, and in the run up to the three-day event in June, the festival’s youth programmes The Sessions and Area 2 have teamed up to showcase some of the best young talent you can see at the festival.

The event will take place on Saturday 20th February 2016 including young talent performing at this year’s festival and some who were discovered last year.

Maia, a young band rapidly making a name for themselves with the unique brand of “Rocking Harmonic Psychedelic Sci-fi folk”, will headline the concert; they are back by popular demand at this year’s festival after being a highlight for many in 2015. Young musicians taking to the stage are Stevie Mould, Elizabeth Pickering and Jack Parker.

, Sessions Events Coordinator, developed the idea of the concert with the festival Director of Youth and Childrens’ Events, Denise Delahay. She said:

“We feel extremely fortunate to be able to have Maia headline the concert after taking last year’s Pre-Festival Concert and Festival by storm. We see this as a great opportunity for people to see the hidden musical gems we have at the festival, especially the immense talent that is coming through our youth programme.”

The concert will follow exclusive workshops by Maia, offered to young people in programmes throughout the area. These workshops are being funded by the grant that the Sessions received from Council in April last year to enable them to provide more opportunities for young people.

The event takes place Hodgsons Public House, , at 7.30pm on Saturday 20th February. Tickets are £10 and available from Tourist Information Centre, or on the door.
