As part of Southend Arts Festival Yardarm Folk Orchestra will be performing at Priory Park bandstand.
Traditional genres continually evolve as they reach new generations of people, gradually encompassing new musical ideas and interpretations. Folk music is no exception.
We aim to embrace and preserve the essence of traditional folk music, and beyond that, appeal to contemporary audiences too, with a fun approach to folk revival and world music.
The Yardarm Folk Orchestra is admired for its lively, spirited performances appealing to musicians and audiences both young and old.
