About US

We’re a bunch of folk enthusiasts dedicated to promoting the folk arts where ever and when ever we can!

Many of our events take place on our smallholding situated in Leicestershire, just outside the village of Newbold, Coleorton which is about four miles from Ashby de la Zouch. 

This town,  according to a famous musical hall song, lies beside the sea but is actually as far away from it as you can get!   

Apart from the usual farming stuff such as hay making and raising cattle, we periodically set up our marquee and arrange various events where the emphasis is on fun and involvement.

In the past we’ve organised May Day Revels, Winter & Summer Solstice celebrations, song writing, fiddle, melodeon, storytelling and creative writing workshops plus numerous private parties!

In 2011 we formed Roots Community Singers which is a specialist folk choir which meets every Tuesday evening in Newbold primary school from 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm.

2009 saw us organise our biggest Folk on the Farm  event ever!  A whole weekend of dancing, music, workshops and performance. 

Here’s a video clip …
