Community

Making and responding to music with others is a great way of connecting and building community. We are involved with informal social music and dance sessions as well as running more structured groups such as the Southampton Folk Orchestra, aiming to play for others in concerts or dances.

We also provide workshops and taster sessions for folk festivals and community groups of all ages.
