Almost at the end of our Winter 'Even Cosier' series. Thanks to Miranda Sykes for a wonderful concert last night at Goodnestone.  Just one more date to go with Sarah McQuaid at the Black Robin next Sunday. Sarah is a technically accomplished guitar player and has also drawn critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences:  “I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever,” wrote The Huffington Post.   Still tickets available online, by post, or on the door.... Keep an eye here for availability as the date approaches.

Folk in the Barn – you’re what we artists call ‘Blue Chip’ promoters – Chris Wood

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
