Welcome to Phoenix Folk

folk music

Welcome to the website of Phoenix Folk Ltd. Established in 2009, Phoenix Folk exists to promote performance and participation in folk music, song and dance. We offer regular folk sessions, events and ensemble opportunities, both in the North East of England and online. Additionally, we provide a range of resources aimed at helping people to engage with folk music as both participant and listener.

We put participation at the centre of all that we do, and aim to provide a comfortable space where musicians of all levels of ability can experience the joy of making music with others, extend their repertoire, challenge themselves and be inspired. We have a particular interest in Northumbrian music and see our online presence as a great opportunity to share local tunes with musicians from outside the region/outside the UK.
