The National Youth Folk Ensemble brings together talented young folk musicians from across England to create inspiring new arrangements of instrumental folk music.
Ensemble members will participate in residential courses, give public performances and receive high quality tuition and guidance from Sam Sweeney (Artistic Director 2016-18) and other leading folk musicians.
For the first stage of the audition process, Sampler Days will include creative workshops with Sam Sweeney, Rob Harbron and Miranda Rutter, short individual auditions, and an information session with Ensemble staff.
Places are free but limited and booking is essential.
