THE FOLK ROOM - RECORD LABEL AND PROMOTERS
'We’re live folk music promoters looking to fill your ears with the music the makes us happiest. Or saddest, but in a good way. We’ve been running gigs in London for over seven years now, and have been a record label for a good chunk of that. In 2017 we launched a second regular event in Brighton. We’ve won Folk Awards, hosted festival stages and once we put on a gig featuring nothing but ABBA covers. Who says folk can’t be fun?
Our website is loaded with information on everything we do. We have details of our regular gigs (we hold at least 50 each year!) and information about The Folkroom Rotating Orchestra – the ever-growing circle of musicians we’re proud to work with on a regular basis.'
