FolkActive Youth Ensemble

FolkActive Youth EnsembleFolkActive Youth Ensemble welcomes young players of any instrument at Grade 3 standard or above. We meet monthly on Sunday mornings during term time at Cantell School, Violet Road, Southampton SO16 3GJ.

Tunes are taught by ear and then used to explore the stylistic details in the playing of folk music as well as spontaneous use of harmony and variation. Tunes and handouts are sent out after the sessions.

The ensemble continued to meet online during coronavirus lockdown and has now made two virtual performance videos, The Plane Tree in 2021 and An Dro in 2020.

The ensemble is led by Chris Nichols of Threepenny Bit
