Salisbury’ s folk scene is thriving

A monthly folk open mic evening at Brown Street has attracted a wide range of local performers since it began last August.

It is an opportunity for folk musicians to take to the stage and perform, no matter how experienced or inexperienced they may be.

Organiser Hadrian Cook, who also plays bass in local folk band Maerefolk, who regularly perform at the events, said: “Well done Brown Street! Salisbury was once quite a centre for folk music and it can be again.
“We’ve been delighted by the number and range of performers who have come forward over the last few months, and look forward to much more in the coming year.
“We are defining ‘folk’ very widely. It’s not only traditional songs and tunes, but also contemporary material. If you sing or play, come along and have a go.”
Future folk nights will be held on the following Wednesdays: January 11, February 8 and March 8.
Performers should arrive from 7pm to book their spot, with the event finishing at around 10pm.
