Our first Waterstones gig was fab! We'll be back! In fact we are... with Chris Wood on the 9th March! Thank you to Steve Knightley for a brilliant show.  Coming next - Fairport Convention on the 19th and 20th, next Tuesday and Wednesday. The gig has been moved to the Colyer Ferguson room next door to the Gulbenkian, due to essential building works. This will actually be a bonus as it's a beautiful space and we've hunkered after using it for ages. Tickets are almost all gone so don't delay. I saw the show last night in Bury St Edmunds and it was superb!  People around me were saying it's the best show from Fairport for years. The set has had a real shake-up, rockier than in recent times , brilliant old songs given a re-working, a beautiful new song from Chris Leslie and a whole new routine from Ric!

We all really enjoyed the gig and feel well and truly privileged to have worked with such a professional and friendly team. Joe's B and B was superb too! -  Elbow Jane

I can't imagine life without Folk in the Barn now! It has provided a lovely focus for hearing new music and performers, in beautiful settings. I can honestly say I have enjoyed each gig I have been to and now have a great collection of cd's to prove it. Angela Barnes

A vital part of preserving the rich heritage of traditional music in Britain is enabling people to see and hear that music played live, and so be inspired to learn more about the music and play it themselves. Folk in the Barn is an outstanding example of the courage and commitment required to ensure that our unique musical heritage not only survives but can grow and continue to develop. Chris Shilling

Huge congratulations to ALL concerned with FITB. Truly the best thing regarding original live music to have happened to Kent for many a year. Thank you so much for bringing us such wonderful artists, time and time again Arcelia

Big thanks to Folk in the Barn for continuing to hunt out and lure to the depths of East Kent, exciting and inspiring performers. Gregory Alan Isakov, his band and the support artist he brought with him were all amazing!!  Danni
